Setting and resetting your password

Choosing a password

You must choose a password when you first register.

For security, your password must:

  • 10 or more characters long.

  • Contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one special character and one number.

  • Valid special characters: !"#$%&'*+,-.\:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~

The above criteria is based on recommendations from OWASP and NCSC to ensure your medical records are kept secure.

Password managers, such as 1Password or LastPass, are a way to create and store usernames and passwords for multiple websites. This means you can use a more unique and hard-to-guess password for your PKB account without having to remember it. 1Password offers PKB users a discount; more information can be found by clicking here.

If you are unable to reset your own password for any reason, you can ask your clinical team to trigger a password reset email for you.
