You should never:
- share your password with a friend, co-worker, or anyone, no matter how much you trust him or her
- write down your password
- keep the same password for more than a few months
We recommend you change your password every eight weeks, or anytime you think someone else may have your password.
Ball State Does Not Ever Ask For Your Password
You should protect your Ball State password in the same manner as your credit card or bank account numbers. No legitimate university faculty, staff, or student should ever ask for your Ball State password. People who desire to use your Ball State account maliciously will work hard to convince you that you must disclose it. Never release your password to anyone under any circumstances.
