A password is the key that unlocks your account, and using a strong password is key to keeping your account secure. While humans and computers can still crack passwords, you should follow these guidelines to maximize your account's security.
  • Use all the characters you can. Activision/Call of Duty account passwords may contain between 8 to 20 characters, and we recommend using all 20.
  • Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers. Along with numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters add even more variables to your password.
  • Avoid passwords that may be easy to guess. Names and birthdates are obvious examples of what to avoid, but you should also steer clear of using passwords that may relate to your gamer ID or the games you typically play.
  • Avoid using common passwords. You've probably heard that "password" is one of the most commonly used passwords. The most frequently used passwords are also the most vulnerable.
We recommend following these guidelines for all accounts you have linked to your Activision/Call of Duty account.
