FoxID Passwords 

The easiest way to create a secure password is to use a passphrase

- a password consisting of a sentence or phrase.

Passphrases are easier to remember and

more secure than a shorter, more complex password.  


Passphrase Requirements:

A passphrase must be at least 16 characters in length

Passphrase Tips & Suggestions:

Consider a passphrase of several random words strung together 

Example: Frog Apple Blue House

Make up a sentence that is relevant to you

but in a way that is not easy to guess 

Example: Oh boy, pizza is great! 

Mix it up! Use misspelled words, spaces, numbers

and punctuation – all of which strengthen passwords.

Example: My C@ts are 2 Qute! 

Don’t use popular quotes, song lyrics or lines from movies.  

Don’t use sample passphrases shared in the tips section.  

Don’t use personal information like names, birthdates, etc.  

Don’t share your password with anyone. 

DegreeWorks Users: Avoid using &,$,+,%, and quotation marks 

Information Technology will NEVER ask you for your password, either personally or via an email. If you receive an email asking you to give account information, it is a phishing scam – don’t do it!
