Change uregina.ca password
This allows you to change your uregina.ca password (used for
Email, UR Courses, Papercut (printing/copying), wireless, Microfocus OES Network client, et. al.)
Password complexity and length should take into account the sensitivity and importance of the systems that the authorization is intended for. The more important, the longer the password should be in addition to the use of a mix of upper and lower case with special characters and numbers. It is better not to reuse passwords that have been used before or are used on other accounts. Using the same password on multiple accounts increases the risk of compromise.
The new password is required to satisfy the following:
- Minimum 8 characters for students, 10 characters for employees, 16 for employees in High-risk areas.
- Maximum 30 characters.
- Must contain at least three out of four of uppercase, lowercase, numeric and special characters
- Password must not include the special characters: @ $ \ " ' < > ;
- The new password should have at least 2 new characters compared to the old one, and at least one change in the first 8 characters.
- Cannot contain first name, last name, username, or birthdate
- Cannot contain any 4 digits found in student/employee ID
- Cannot contain any sequence of increasing or decreasing digits greater than 3 (1234XX or XX4321 for example)
- Cannot contain any character repeated three or more times
