How to Change your Password for Non-AU Canvas users

Introduction

For non-AU Canvas users, you can change your password in your profile settings.

There are no password reset intervals, so you can change your password as little or as often as you want. However, you can keep strong passwords effective by changing them often. Here are some good password guidelines:

  • Use at least eight characters (the more the better), but most people will find anything more than about 15 characters difficult to remember.
  • Use a random mixture of characters, upper and lower case, numbers, punctuation, spaces, and symbols.
  • Don't use a word found in a dictionary, English or foreign.
