    Setting a strong password from the beginning is a good start to being a smart user of the Washington College network. However, it’s not enough to be truly secure. Security experts recommend changing your password (or passphrase) at least once every three months (90 days) and OIT requires this practice.

    It is important to remember that your new password cannot be the same password used during the last three changes.

    For even greater security, many people change their password once a month. Whether once a month or once every three months, it is important to find a schedule that works for you and stick with it.
