Top 3 password tips before the Feb. 13 password deadline

The eID password-change deadline is Feb. 13, only two weeks away. Here are the top three password tips that K-Staters should know.

1. K-State will never ask for your eID password via email. But email phishing scams abound, and hackers use many ways to trick people into disclosing their  eID password.  Any email that asks for a password — or points to a webpage that asks for a password — is a phishing scam and should be deleted immediately. 

2. After a successful password change, anyone who uses the wireless network needs to update their wireless password, too.  Passwords on all mobile devices also need to be updated.

3. To change your password, use the connect.k-state.edu webpage to sign in with your eID and current password. Click “Change your eID password” and follow the steps.

Contact the IT Help Desk (helpdesk@k-state.edu, 785-532-7722) if you have any questions.
