Keep your password twice as long now

Effective Aug. 25, Ohio State’s password policy has been changed to increase the time between password changes from 90 days to 180 days. This affects the username and password you use to access Ohio State email, OSU Wireless and protected university web pages.

CFAES system policies also have been changed to align with the new university policy, so users in Columbus, Wooster and across Ohio will have to change the password they use to log on to their computer only twice a year. This is a result of feedback from across the university, including from CFAES IT staff and many of you.

We thank you for your interest in these issues and trust you are pleased to see this change.
