|Creating an eBay Password|
You sign into your eBay account with your user ID and password. When creating your password, follow these tips:
Your password must be:
A combination of at least two of the following: uppercase or lower case letters (A-Z or a-z), numbers (0-9) and special characters (?_!@#) (example: Beatlesfan#28, $uperman1963)
Your password can't be:
Similar to your email address or eBay user ID.
Common passwords or passwords with number or letter sequences (example: abc123)
Single words that can be found in the dictionary (example: kangaroo)
Other password tips:
Don't use personal information that others can easily obtain or guess (example: your name, phone number, or birth date).
The longer and more complex your password is, the harder it will be to guess. Place numbers and punctuation randomly in your password.
Create a password that's secure, but still easy for you to remember. To help you remember your password, consider using a phrase or song title as your password. For example, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" can become "Sw0tR8nBo."
After creating your password, protect it. Don't share your password with others.
Don't use the same password for your other online accounts, such as email, bank, and social networking accounts.
Note: eBay will never ask you to provide your password by email.
