Password Changes: Extended Expiration and Character Length

Issue:

Password expiration and limited password length.

Environment:

MyCharleston, Microsoft Office365, and Google accounts. 

 

Resolution:

  • Password expiration has been extended. You will now only be prompted to change your password every 450 days.
  • The maximum password length is now 99 characters, giving you the opportunity to use a long passphrase (a series of random words or a sentence).
