Changes to password guidelines

UT has implemented a number of new cyber security measures in recent years, such as the introduction of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). In addition, UT is changing the guidelines for your password as of 1 December 2022.

What will change?

From 1 December 2022, it will no longer be mandatory to change your password annually. Another change is that the minimum number of characters has changed from 10 to 14.

Tips for a strong password and information on password managers can also be found in the guidelines.

Authentication without a password

Meanwhile, the LISA department continues to work on increasing the security of the university, its staff and students, such as password-free authentication. So be sure to keep an eye on the cybersecurity website!
