Password Change


I thought Essex University was bad for making me change my password every 6 months, but Falmouth (where I'm external examiner) insists on it every 6 weeks. I wasn't aware of this until today, when I found that the password which worked just before Christmas didn't work any more. I asked what was going on, and was told that passwords died after 42 days.

Changing a password every 6 weeks is brutal! I've had to set up a reminder in my calendar so I don't forget and have to ask the IT helpdesk to reset it (yet) again.
