About PIN/Password
Your Library PIN/Password can be 4 to 30 alphanumeric characters without dashes or spaces, with no "common trivial patterns" such as:

--A character that is consecutively repeated three or more times, e.g., aaaa, aaaax7gp, x7gp3333
--A set of up to four characters is that is consecutively repeated two or more times, e.g., abab, abcabc, abcdabcd, ababx7gp, x7gp3434

If there was no PIN/Password in your record, the system will accept the number you just keyed as your PIN/Password, and you will be asked to enter it again as verification. For security purposes, instead of seeing the actual numbers on the screen, the user will see asterisks or bullets displayed as the new PIN/Password is entered.
