All passwords must meet all of the below requirements

  • Minimum length of 8 characters and a maximum length of 100 characters
  • Must include at least one uppercase and one lowercase letter
  • Must have at least one number
  • The password should not be similar to the account email address
  • The password should not be similar to the account first or last name
  • The password should not be a common password (for example 'Password123' would not be accepted)

Accepted Characters

  • Lowercase and Uppercase a-z / A-Z
  • Numbers 0-9
  • The following Special Characters are accepted  ' @ & # - ; : < > ? [ ] ^ \ _ . 
  • Spaces are permitted in passwords

Excluded Characters

Please Note:

The most common reason for a password being rejected is the use of unsupported special characters. Please check the accepted list carefully as common special characters like ! and $ are not valid in Sparkol passwords. Extended character sets like ĉ ć Ą Ă ú ô ÿ are not accepted
