Password Requirements for My Shaw and @shaw.ca Email Accounts
To keep your Shaw accounts secure, it’s important to choose a password that is hard for someone to guess, but simple enough for you to remember. Scroll down for some great advice about choosing a good password.
Passwords must meet Shaw’s minimum security requirements. A security rating of “Okay” will result in your password being accepted. A security rating of "Too Weak" will result in your password being rejected
The best passwords are complex, random, contain several words, and include numbers, upper case characters, lower case characters, and symbols. To build a secure password:
String together a few random words.
Add capital letters.
Add numbers and symbols.
If your password isn’t complex enough, it will be rejected and you’ll have to choose a new one.
