Choosing the right password

  • This is the new password policy as it stands:
    • Use at least 10 characters, the more the better.
    • Start with a letter.
    • Include at least one number.
    • Use upper- and lower-case letters AND one special character such as #, $, % etc.
    • Don't write down your passwords. If you MUST, keep them locked up in your desk or in a safe.
    • Select a unique password for each account.
    • Make your password easy to remember but difficult to guess--don't use words--like 'teddybear123'
    • Use a password manager like LastPass.
    • Try a passphrase instead.
    • Once you have reset your password, you will need to wait 24 hours before you can reset it again. If you need to reset your password within 24 hours of resetting via self-service, then you will need to contact the IT Service Desk for assistance at 859-622-3000.
    • See EKU IT Password Security for other strategies for picking a good password.
