Choosing a Strong Password
Posted by Dan Hoisington on 09 April 2009 05:30 PM

General Tips 

  • The longer the password, the more secure it will be. Augsburg passwords should be at least 8 characters long.
  • Avoid using passwords that include your date of birth, graduation year(s), name, or parts of your name. This information is easily searchable, so you should avoid using it.
  • Have a password that includes at least three of the following: lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, symbols.


Compromised Accounts 

  • If you feel that your account has been compromised, change the password immediately. 
  • Update your security questions.
  • Let your contacts know that your account may have sent out a malicious email or other fake content. People should delete it without opening it. 
  • If it is your Augsburg account and you clicked on an spam or virus email, let IT know as soon as possible.
