The University’s Password Policy requires you to change your password every 365 days and we recognise that a proportion of staff members will be prompted to change password over the coming weeks.
You will receive a warning notification 5 days before your password is due to expire. We strongly recommend you change your password when you receive the initial warning to avoid being forced to change your password at a time when you might require access to online services. You should also give yourself time to update the password on all of your devices - your account can become locked if even one device still has the old password saved on it.
Your new password must meet the requirements of the of the University’s Password Policy:
- The minimum password length is 15 characters.
- There are no complexity requirements, i.e. you don’t need to use a mixture of upper and lower case letters, digits and special characters.
- Passwords expire every 365 days, and must be changed whenever they are suspected of being, or known to be compromised.
You can use passphrases or random words to generate your password which will make it easier to remember – find out what makes a good password.
You can change your password any time at https://mypassword.napier.ac.uk/
