Strong passwords that aren't easy to guess are an important part of your ACS security. Here are some tips for using passwords:

  • Don't use familiar names, dates, or other personal data; instead use a combination of characters including letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Don't share your password with others, or use the same one for every program or account.
  • Change your password periodically.

Once a password is assigned, only an individual who has security permission for Add/Edit Users can change the password, whether it's their own or someone else's. Passwords can be three to twenty characters long and are not case sensitive.

 To change a password
  1. Under Advanced Tools, click My Preferences.
  2. Under Settings, click Change Password.
  3. Enter your old password.
  4. Enter your new password.
  5. Re-enter your new password to confirm the spelling.
  6. Click OK.
