With all of our advances in security technology, one aspect remains constant: passwords still play a central role in our network security.  The use of good, hard-to-guess passwords can make it difficult for a malicious hacker to break into your computer account.  Your password must be at least 8 characters in length and it is recommended that the password contain a combination of letters and numbers.

 

Remember that the confidentiality of passwords is each individual’s responsibility and the sharing of passwords is forbidden by Madison County Schools Board Policy. (See Madison County Schools Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy at:  http://www.madison.k12.al.us/aup.htm ).
