How to create a strong password for your online TurboTax account

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online342Updated January 19, 2022

To protect your sensitive information, your TurboTax account password must be at least 8 characters long (32 characters maximum). Your password must include all of the following:

  • Upper-case character
  • Lower-case character
  • Number
  • Symbol

The more you combine them, the stronger your password will be.


    • Use a different password for each online account. Using the same password for multiple accounts puts them all at risk if one is hacked.
    • Create a password that is hard to guess, but easy to remember.
    • Use syllables or acronyms to create your password. For example, four score and seven years ago could become fsasya, 4s&7ya, or foSCanSeYeAG.
    • Don't use numerical or alphabetical sequences such as 123456 or abcdef.
    • Don't use names or special dates in your password. This keeps your password from being easily guessed.
    • Use a password manager to securely store your password. You can find some good ones on the Internet at low cost or even for free.
    • Never share your password with others or write them down.

If there's ever any activity on your account you need to know about, we'll contact you via email.
