This article reviews password requirements for creating or resetting passwords. Having a strong password reduces the chance of someone guessing your password, thus increasing the security on your site.
How to reset your password
Step 1: Navigate to My preferences
On the MindTouch toolbar, click your user icon and select My preferences.
Step 2: Enter a strong password
Enter your old and new passwords and make sure to meet these requirements:
- The password must be at least eight (8) characters in length.
- The password must contain at least two (2) of the following characters: lowercase, uppercase, number or symbol.
MindTouch does not recognize underscores
_ as special characters.
- The password cannot contain common dictionary words. Use a password generator such as strongpasswordgenerator.com or create variations of words with symbols and numbers, e.g. p@$$w0rd.
Passwords are case sensitive.
Step 3: Modify your password if necessary
While entering your password, you are notified if you meet the above requirements. A green checkmark indicates requirements have been met; a yellow triangle indicates requirements have not been met.
