Password Descriptions

Mixed Case -  You must use both upper/lower case letters and numbers. Complex passwords are case sensitive and should always contain mixed case letters and numbers.

Filter Word Dictionary - You can not contain any real English, French, Spanish, German, or Italian word, including names and other proper nouns, that is four characters in length or longer. For example, "oFoui3&me" would be okay as a password, but "guten3$helLo" would not.
