You must change your password in order to ensure the security of your computer account. If your password were not changed on a regular basis, your familiarity with your password would eventually lead to it's compromise.
Once another person has acquired your password, they can use your computer account. They can even use your computer account to attack other machines. If they use your account to attack a machine, it will look like YOU attacked that machine and the authorities will come looking for YOU!

To change your password, use PassPort, same as when you were here at Georgia Tech. Be sure that your security questions (or HINTS) have been set when you actually know your password. The answers to these questions can be used any time in the event that you forget your password. Remember they are your alternate way to login. They do NOT reset or give you your password, they are simply another way to login. If you have to use this method to login, then you can simply create a new password.

OIT requires that you change your password about every 120 days (3 times per year). If you do not change your password when asked, your password will expire. You will no longer be able to login to various services such as BuzzPort, MyGaTech email, & LAWN (GTwpa).
