Password requirements

Your new password should be difficult to guess, which is why it must meet several requirements.

The new password:

  • contains at least 8 characters and is no more than 32 characters long;
  • contains at least 1 lower-case letter;
  • contains at least 1 number;
  • contains at least 1 upper-case letter;
  • contains at least one special character such as: ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + = - ` { } [ ];
  • does not contain your UvAnetID, email address, surname or first name;
  • does not contain any spaces;
  • is not the same as any of your previous 5 passwords.

    You will find dozens of tips online for creating a new password. For example, think of a sentence and use the first letters from that sentence.
