Here are recommendations for creating a password of your own that satisfy the level of security needed to keep out most hackers and Internet bots:

Update your admin account’s password to 8+ digits. The best passwords use upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters (&^%$#*, etc.).

If you forgot or lost your password, click the “Lost your password?” button on the screen at http://yoursitename.com/wp-admin/ (where yoursitename.com is the actual address to your blog).
