Longer NetLink passwords

On December 11, 2013, we will be making a change to the NetLink password change and password reset webpages that will let you set a longer NetLink password.

The current NetLink password policy allows for a password between 6 and 8 characters.  This has been deemed insufficient by security standards and so we have addressed this problem by allowing passwords to be between 8 and 30 characters. 

See the password tips page for further information on creating more secure passwords.

You can change or update your password by visiting the following link:
