Having a strong password is essential while using xat. It prevents people guessing your password and getting into your account. xat includes account security features to help against this, which you can read Account Protection for more information. You may also want to read the Phishing article for more ways to protect yourself online.

Note: Symbols and spaces are removed from your password when trying to login (if you have them in your password). This means that the symbols/spaces aren't actually in your password, due to xat removing them by default. For things like editing your profile or trading, you would have to type the password without the symbols or change your password entirely for easier access (which you can do by going to the login page). With that being said, make sure your password only contains alphanumeric characters (a-z A-Z 0-9).

How can I make a strong password?

A strong password consists of at least 8 characters that are a combination of upper and lowercase letters, as well as numbers. The more characters you use inside your password, the stronger the password will be.

You should avoid using your name, username, birthday, repeated characters, or set of common words. Your password should also be different to any other social account you own.
