Why does my BlueNet Account password expire every 60 days?
For security reasons, everyone is forced to change their passwords every 60 days. In the event that someone learns your password, they can access your personal information and can possibly make changes to it and/or use your identify for undesirable purposes. The more often you change your password, the more secure your account and personal information will be.
How can I avoid having my BlueNet Account password expire?
You will receive a warning about your expiration each time you log into a PC on campus. These warnings start 14 days before the expiration and continue each day until the expiration date. It is advisable for you to change your password as soon as you see this warning. You will avoid password expiration by changing your password on a regular basis. You don't have to wait the 60 days, you can reset it at any time. After you reset your password, your new password will last for 60 days after the day you change it.
If you miss (or ignore) the warnings, the password will automatically expire. The next time you attempt to log into a web-based system after your password has expired, you will get a Failed Login (Username/Password pair not found error). If this happens, you will need to reset your password at https://accounts.ccsu.edu.
