What makes a strong password
The easiest way to protect yourself from cyber threats is by having a strong password. The longer and more complex your password is, the more difficult it will be to crack. Hackers have databases full of the most common passwords and phrases, and they can run a comparison with your password to find a match.
Your password should be greater that nine characters long, with at least one capital letter, one number and one special character "@", or "%", etc. Add an extra level of security by changing your password regularly to ensure that you stay ahead of the hackers. Remember, the best passwords contain as much randomness as possible.
- Bad: FuzzyDog#8254!
- Good: %FuZZyDOG#8254!
- Great: myFuzzyDog-eats4bones!Aday
IMPORTANT: It is important to remember that you should not use the same password for multiple accounts, no matter how strong it is,because if one account gets compromised, then they all get compromised.
After setting your BW Password your BW Credentials are active on all BW sites.
IMPORTANT: Please allow 30 minutes after setting your new password before accessing your BW Email (email.bw.edu). BW Email is provided by Microsoft Office 365 and there is a delay with securely transferring your account information.
