i have been trying to create a password and it's telling me that i need a special character and an alpha character in my password, what's the difference? I looked up what the difference is and i get the same results.

Almost universal for password checking at most (semi) secure sites when setting up passwords will be: 6-8 characters
at least one number
at least one 'special character' ( as annotated above)
and perhaps at least one of the letters must be capital letter

Passwords such as 'password' are out, while presumably 'Password1!' must be almost impervious! :)
