Change your password when you change your clocks. Daylight Saving Time starts March. 12 umich.edu/passsword

Have you changed your password(s) recently? When you change your clocks for the start of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 12, consider changing your UMICH (Level-1) password as well. ITS suggests that you change your UMICH password every six months or so. An easy way to remember this is to change your password when you change your clocks for Daylight Saving Time. Change your password at password.it.umich.edu.

If you want to take an extra step to protect your data (and the university’s), turn on two-factor authentication for Weblogin. Find out more about two-factor authentication at U-M.

    Thanks for your suggestion. We are returning to some language we have used in the past, recommending that people check their passwords every six months and review good password security. Our password security checklist has been updated:

    We will update our images with that language next time around.
