    Ensure that your password is at least 8 characters in length
    Use a mix of upper case and lower case characters
    Have a mix of both numbers and letters
    Use symbols such as @, *, + etc.


    Repeat the same character in your password eg: 'aaaa' or 'ababab'
    Use sequential characters in your password such as '1234' or 'abcd' or '1111'

    The most secure passwords will contain 3 or 4 of each of the following items:

    Lowercase Letters

    NOTE: If Pension Planet Interactive deems your password insecure, it will not permit you to use it.

  11. I was expecting an email from Pension Planet Interactive, but have not received it. Why is this?

    Pension Planet Interactive sends automatic email messages to users for a variety of reasons. For example, as part of the registration process user can receive email which will include a verification code.

    If you do not receive such an email, this can often be because your email program (e.g.: Outlook) has incorrectly categorised the email as 'spam' or 'junk' mail. To verify this, examine the contents of your spam or junk folder to see if it contains email messages that should not be categorised as such.

    In Microsoft Outlook, this folder is often called the "Junk E-mail" folder. If you find that a legitimate email message has been added to this folder, simply right click on the email message and choose the "Junk E-mail" option. This will then give you several sub-options. Select the "Add sender to safe senders list" option. This will ensure that further emails from that address are not incorrectly categorised as spam or junk.

    For instructions relating to other email programs, please contact your local support function or the email program vendor.
