Password expiry
We know you know it's important to keep the password for your Oxford username safe. But have you stopped to consider why? In a world where we increasingly conduct our lives online our digital identity is precious and this is as true in Oxford as anywhere else. Your digital identity in Oxford is managed by Registration Services in IT Services and we take lots of steps to maintain the overall security of your digital identity. One of those steps is to set a password expiry that means you must change your password at least once a year. You may argue that you don't have to do this for other online services but we believe that setting a password expiry brings benefits that improve security for you and everyone in Oxford.
