Password security

Hi Bay Library users, I’m Grant and I work here as a Service Adviser on the Library desk at the Bay.  Previously I worked for IT Support at Aberystwyth University.  Here are some top tips regarding the security of your uGrantniversity password:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Go to https://mypassword.swan.ac.uk  to change your password from the default password you were given at the beginning of your SU studies.
  • Make your password more than 10 characters long. The longer the better.
  • Use higher and lower case letters.
  • Use at least, 2 numbers and 1 special character ($%*&) in your password.
  • Use different passwords for different systems.
  • Change your passwords every now and again.
  • Never share your password with anyone – not even a member of Library and IT staff.

Keep secure. Stay safe.
