Your IU network ID and passphrase are the keys to a range of services and resources at IU. The best thing about passphrases: They’re more secure than passwords.
If you haven’t changed your passphrase in two years, IU will require you to update it. If you ignore the reminders, your passphrase will expire and you’ll be locked out of many IU services.
Quick tips for coming up with a new passphrase:
- Choose something memorable, like a line from a movie or a song lyric.
- Replace letters with numbers or symbols for increased security.
- Use a vault, a program for creating and storing a hard-to-remember passphrase.
