Protecting your password

It is important to make sure you have a strong password to ensure online safety.

Unfortunately, One common way that online accounts are breached is through password spraying, whereby lists of a small number of common passwords are used to brute force large numbers of accounts.

These attacks are successful because for any given large set of users there will likely be some who are using very common passwords, and these attacks can slip under the radar of protective monitoring which only look at each account in isolation.

Therefore, it is extremely important that you use a strong password for myUniHub and your student email to ensure cyber safety.

How to create a strong and safe password:
  1. Do not use the same password, security question and answer for multiple important accounts.
  2. Use a password that has at least 16 characters, use at least one number, one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter and one special symbol.
  3. Do not use the names of your families, friends or pets in your passwords.
  4. Do not use postcodes, house numbers, phone numbers, birthdates, ID card numbers, social security numbers, and so on in your passwords.
You can change your password by simply logging into myUniHub and going to the 'password change' section.

MDX is currently working on a 2-factor authentication to ensure an even higher level of  protection for student accounts.
