In a continued effort to follow best security practices, ITS has expanded the maximum character length of passwords to 30 characters. Users will not be required to have that many characters in their passwords, but they can be changed up to that number if desired. This may help people use phrases as passwords, which may be more mnemonic than a string of characters. The minimum password length will remain at 12. Also, remember that the University requires that passwords for all UUID accounts be changed every 6 months. For more information regarding password security, visit the ITS webpage on this topic.
