Password Guidelines

Please read these prior to changing your password. For your convenience, our password changing utility will check your password for common dictionary words and the recommended length and character guidelines.

  • Your password must be at least eight (8) characters long and no longer than 40.
  • Password Expiration
    • Passwords 15 characters or longer will expire in 400 days
    • Passwords less than 15 characters will expire in 90 days
  • Passwords must contain characters from three of the following categories:
    • English uppercase characters (A through Z)
    • English lowercase characters (a through z)
    • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
    • Non-alphanumeric characters (e.g., !, $, #, %)
    • Passwords may not contain spaces
    • Passwords may not contain these special characters: { } : =
  • Passwords should not contain portions of your name.
  • Words found in common dictionaries should not be used unless the spelling is altered or the words are three (3) characters or shorter.
  • Passwords should be changed often!
  • All passwords should be treated as CASE SENSITIVE although not all systems require this.
  • View the security page to learn more information about security at the University of Idaho
  • Special Notice: Banner account passwords.
    • Passwords can be no longer than 30 characters
    • Passwords may not contain spaces
    • Passwords may not contain these special characters: @ $ & ( ) < > ` ; = # " ' ? ! [ ] * % | /
    • Passwords cannot begin with a number

Password Managers

Password managers are applications that securely store passwords for your various accounts. The main benefit is that you no longer have to remember a unique password for each of your account because it is stored in the password manager which is secured with a single password. This makes it easier to use a unique password for every account, use a more complex password, and many allow you to automatically fill in your username and password on most websites. Some of the most popular password managers are listed below:

  • LastPass
  • KeePass
  • 1Password
  • Roboform

Password Sharing

Password sharing is against University of Idaho policy. When you share your password with another user it allows them to access UI systems with the same level of access that you have. You are responsible for your user account and if someone else uses it, you are also responsible for their actions. Password sharing just isn't worth the risk.

Password Re-Use

Re-Using a password for more than one account (i.e. Facebook and Online Banking Account) can make it much easier for an attacker to get access to your sensitive information. For instance, if an attacker were able to discover your Facebook password, they would also have access to your bank account and could cause some serious damage! Using unique passwords for each account is always the most secure option. Additionally, it is against UI Policy to re-use your UI Net ID password for any other account.
