STU Password

Do not reuse your STU Password anywhere; this greatly reduces the chance of your password being discovered.

To make a strong password try Four Random Words.  Why?
–       Easy to type – all lower case letters
–       Easier to remember then the older style – Y%^110w123!
–       Strong – very hard to guess

Size – 14 to 30 characters (don’t need special characters all lowercase leters is ok)
Good   e.g.      correcthorsebatterystaple    do not use this example it is too public
Bad      e.g.      bobspassword            too short, contains “password”

If you want even stronger authentication, you could set up multi factor authentication using your smartphone, office phone or other device.   Once you change your password, please contact the helpdesk if you would like to set up MFA.
