Password Policies and Tips 
Tips to maintain a strong and secure password:

  • Passwords should be at least 8 characters long. 
  • Instead of trying to remember a very complicated password, it may be helpful to increase your password length and use a passphrase. 
  • Examples include:
    • R@tPizzaIsMyFavoriteFood2018!
    • Studying@PBJLibraryIsGreat
    • C0mputerSafetyIsImp0rtant4all
    • PleaseDONOTUseThese4PasswordsAsExample$
  • Use a variety of passwords for different systems. Make your Rhodes password different than those for your bank accounts, social media, and other email addresses. 
  • Do not share your password with anyone. It should be yours and yours alone. Lock or log out of your computer whenever you leave it.
  • Consider changing your passwords periodically. You can change your Rhodes password here:
  • You may want to consider using a password manager such as LastPass, 1Password, or Keeper.
  • You can set up your OneLogin Protect security questions as an alternate to using the mobile app:  Security Question
