To help protect your account, follow these guidelines and safeguards regarding your password:

Password Selection Tips

  • Use a combination of letters and numbers (e.g. Gators7248)
  • Use 8 or more characters – the longer the better.
  • Don’t use personal information that can easily be guessed (e.g phone number, last name etc.)
  • Don’t use the same password used for other important online accounts.
  • Don’t use your Username (the system won’t let you).
  • Don’t use common words found in a dictionary.
  • Don’t use “password”, “123456”, “777777”, “abcdef” or other easy to guess terms/patterns.

Protect your Password/Account

  • Change your password regularly.
  • Always log off the system when finished.
  • Store written passwords securely (e.g. safe or locked cabinet).
  • Record password reminders instead of the actual password.
  • Don’t store your password on your computer.
  • Don’t share your password with others.
  • Don’t store your password in your desk.
