If you think your DS password may be known by a third party you should:

  • disconnect your device from the University network (both wired and wireless)
  • change your password via a device you do not regularly use (for example, a colleague's PC)
  • report it to the Helpdesk (contact Information Services)

Whenever you set or change your password, you'll need to make sure it complies with the following rules. If you do not, then the system will not allow you to set/change your password:

  • use 12 to 30 characters
  • combination of upper and lowercase letters (A to Z, a to z)
  • at least one number (0 to 9) or one of the following symbols (# $ % ^ & * - _ + = [ ] { } | \ : , . ? / ` ~ ( ) ;)
  • the first character must be alphabetic
  • cannot contain your name or username

Please note that the use of common names or simplistic passwords could compromise the security of your data.
