Google Account Password requirements
Last Updated 5 years ago

Google Account passwords must be at least 8 characters long. They can include:

  • Uppercase and lowercase letters. Passwords are case-sensitive, so "G" is different from "g."
  • Numbers
  • These symbols: ! " # $ % & ‘ ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^ { | } ~
  • Spaces
Keep in mind, you won’t be able to reuse a password from the past year. We’ve also blocked some passwords that are easy to guess, like “12345678.”
