Do you use the same password for all UCSD systems?

If you normally use the same, common password for all UCSD systems, then change ALL of your UCSD Passwords (that are applicable to you) to keep everything synchronized. DO NOT use this new password on any non-UCSD systems.

Change your Math Password FIRST. It will list the security requirements for a new password that should be acceptable on all UCSD systems. To be more secure, use different passwords for each UCSD system BUT ONLY if you can actually remember each password.
