Use a password checker to test the strength of your password. A password checker is available in the learning materials available at the end of this training session.

Use different usernames for home and work e-mail addresses.

Use a password for all mobile computing devices (e.g. laptops, netbooks, iPads, Smartphones, flash drivers, etc.)

Store your passwords in a secure location where others cannot access them, such as on paper in a locked drawer.

Never share your password including with members of Technology Services. They will never ask for this information!
