Use secure passwords. Keep the following guidelines in mind:
Length: The minimum recommended length is 6 characters. A secure password is at least 8 characters; longer passwords are better. The maximum length is 255 characters for a ZENworks password and 8 characters for a VNC password.
Complexity: A secure password contains a mix of letters and numbers. It should contain both uppercase and lowercase letters and at least one numeric character. Adding numbers to passwords, especially when they are added to the middle and not just at the beginning or the end, can enhance password strength. Special characters such as &, *, $, and > can greatly improve the strength of a password. Do not use recognizable words such as proper names or words from a dictionary, and do not use personal information such as phone numbers, birth dates, anniversary dates, addresses, or ZIP codes.
