new password procedures
New Password Procedures
  • No need to change your password every 90 days anymore
  • You can change your password on the database if you suspect or know it has been compromised (or if you just want to change it)
  • A “Forgot your password” link will now be available on the log-in screen.
    • You will be emailed a one-time-use link (similar to how the process works with online banks)
    • This process will also work after a “lock-out” (3 incorrect log-in attempts)
password procedures what has not changed
Password Procedures: What has NOT changed
  • Same data security measures apply:
    • Do NOT share your password with anyone else (including your supervisor)
  • Do not have your computer “remember” your password
  • Refrain from writing the passwords down
  • Same requirements for type/length:
    • At least 6 characters, with at least 1 letter and 1 number
