• All passwords must be at least 8 characters and include lower and upper case letters, numbers, and symbols. Better still, make the password much longer 
  • When setting your password you can check its strength and complexity using an online evaluation tool
  • When setting your password do not reuse your UEA password to access any third party web services
  • If you have reused your UEA password, change the password to something else
  • If you struggle to remember many passwords for different websites, consider using Password Management software (Advice from NCSC)
  • Do not tell your password to ANYBODY, not even IT staff
