Passwords are an important part of computer security. MyCarletonOne enforces strong passwords through strict password rules.
General Password Tips:
You basically want to treat your password as you would your toothbrush. Change it often. Don’t share it. If you have shared it, discard it and get a new one. And don’t leave it lying around for anyone to ‘borrow’.
- Do not share your password with anyone for any reason.
- Use a different password for each account – your banking password should be different from your Facebook password.
- Never respond to email requests for your password, even if the email appears to come from Carleton. Carleton University will never ask you for your password via email.
