Strengthen Your Password | Use a Passphrase

You use a password every day to access your social media accounts, your smart devices, and even the student portal. A compromised password can provide someone with access to your accounts and information without you even knowing.

Use a passphrase instead to help keep your accounts and information secure.

A passphrase is a sentence-like string of words that is longer than a traditional password, easy to remember, and difficult to guess.

A passphrase could be several meaningful but seemingly unrelated words such as Coconut Orchid Zebra Doctor. This has meaning to you and is easy to remember, but it would take 72,233,671 centuries for a hacker to guess, even with technology designed to guess passwords.
