How important is my password security? 

Your password is not just for your email! There is a significant need to protect the security and integrity of everyone's account. For this reason, your password at Emerson College must adhere to a set of complexity requirements as described below.

Emerson advocates the use of a "pass phrase"—combining individual words that do not necessarily belong together to achieve length. Complexity can be added, such as spaces and capitalization. An example of a bad passphrase would be purplegreenbluered, because the words are related, but an example of a good passphrase might be "purple windowsill BLEEDING edge."

Change My Password
