Can I reuse a password?

Can I reuse a password?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students

It is really important that you do not use the same password more than once as it will put you and the University’s systems at risk.

When changing your password you will be asked to use a new password every time and will no longer be able to use the same password more than once - guidance on choosing a strong password can be found in the separate article: What makes a good password?

You should also enrol for the Self-Service Password Reset service.
