We set your password to make it easy for you to login, particularly at the start of term when you are just getting started on your course.
But you should change this password to something harder to guess as soon as you can. The shortest password can be 8 characters long, but we recommend that 15 characters what you should aim for – and do this by using three words (with no spaces) instead of just a single word. We call this a ‘passphrase’.
A passphrase is 3 or more words that are not related and can’t be guessed. You should also try not to use correct spellings. Instead, use slang.
You should also change letters to numbers and symbols and use capital letters within your passphrase.
An example of a strong passphrase would be: L3tsm@@keloadsa£££
If you choose to sync your College email to your mobile phone or other device, please limit the number of devices you use as much as possible. Please also remember, if you change your passphrase, then you have to update it on every device/mobile you have used to sync your College email. Otherwise the mobile will still try to login with your old password to sync your email and it could cause problems.
