  6. When I try to set up a new password for My Verizon, I get a message saying it's not valid because it's an easily guessed password. What does this mean?

    We've upgraded our online security to better protect you and your account. There are certain passwords that hackers commonly guess and use to sign in to accounts without the user's permission. When you submit a new password, we compare it against this list to prevent you from choosing a risky one.

    If the password you've chosen matches an easily guessed password or is similar to one, you'll need to choose a different, more secure password.

  7. How do I know if my password is secure and not easy to guess?

    To ensure your password can't be easily guessed, follow these guidelines:

    • Don't include your My Verizon User ID in any form — even spelled backwards with a number added to the beginning or end

    • Avoid using a single word from any language with any number added to the beginning or end (e.g., football6, 9659gato, etc.)

    • Avoid using readily accessible personal information, such as names, birth dates, telephone numbers, license plate number, driver's license or passport numbers

    • Don't use any variation of the word "password" (e.g., pa$5w@rd)

    • Avoid common names and dictionary words because some may not be allowed

    • Don't repeat the same letter or number, sequential letters or numbers, or consecutive keystrokes within a password (e.g., aaaa, 1111, 1234, qwerty, etc.)
  8. What is a Secret Question in My Verizon?
