A password should be 8 - 256 characters long. It is recommended that password has both lowercase and uppercase symbols as well as digits and html symbols. More tips on how to create a strong password are listed in the Strong password guidelines article.

It is recommended to have a copy or reminder in a safe place in case the original password is lost or forgotten.
