Updating Passwords

Changing your password regularly is good practice to protect your accounts and keep your information secure. In order to keep our network safe, we require E-town Network users to change their password every 120 days. Don’t worry, Outlook and the Outlook Web App will remind you when it is time to change your password. You will also receive several emails from JayNet reminding you when your password will expire.  Your password might be ready to update if you last changed in late spring or early summer.

When creating a new password, remember that it needs to contain at least three of these four elements:

  • Uppercase letter
  • Lowercase letter
  • Number
  • Special character (e.g. # $ ! * ^)

In addition, your password must be a minimum of eight characters, cannot contain your username or email address, and cannot be the same as any of your last five passwords.

You can change your password when logging on to a campus computer or through the Outlook Web App when checking your email. Be sure to update your password on all of your devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) to avoid locking yourself out of your account.

For in-depth instructions on how to change your E-town Network password, please refer to the Change Network Password article of the Knowledgebase.
