Passwords are an important way to protect your authority on all computers on campus. If the password is known to others, it means that the authority that you have on the computer is passed on to others.

The password must be at least 10 uppercase letters + lowercase letters + numbers + symbols.

After that, it is desirable to do as follows.

o Make it as long as you can remember

o Things that cannot be inferred from personal information such as names

o Do not use English words as they are

o Do not arrange in an easy-to-guess manner or make an easy combination
