How to Update and Choose a Secure Password

Follow

Creating a secure password for your FNU account is vital to ensuring security. 

To update your password, please log into the FNU Portal, here: Click here to go to the Portal!

Log into the portal and then choose the Change Password link at the top of the page.

After clicking Change Password, you will be prompted to enter a New Password, and then you will need to Confirm the new password.

Your new password must be at least 8 characters long containing at least 1 uppercase letter, and 1 number.

Special Characters are now permitted in passwords!!

Examples of special characters includes: 

! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . / :
; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^ _ ` { | } ~

Here are some methods for creating a secure password.

Take a sentence and turn it into a password.

The sentence can be anything personal and memorable for you. Take the words from the sentence, then abbreviate and combine them in unique ways to form a password. Here are some sample sentences that I put together.

1tubuupshimj = I tuck button-up shirts into my jeans.

Wh1smyPa55w0rd = What is my password

Substituting numbers for letters is a good way to make a secure password. 

Some examples include:

4=A

1=I or L

0=O

7=V

3=E

6=G

5=S

Alternatively, you can use a password generator to create a new random password: Click here to use Norton Password Generator!

(Note: The default settings of the password generator should create a valid password.)

Also, we recommend not using the same password for FNU that you use for other systems. This can help prevent attackers, who gain access to compromised accounts, from accessing your other accounts if one is compromised.
