Mac Passwords

Mac Passwords

  1. Set the “Security” preferences in System Preferences so a password is required to wake from sleep or from the screen saver; this will keep others from using an unattended Mac.
  2. Do not use the same account name and password on your Mac that you use to log on to other campus services.
  3. Never create a guest account, anonymous login, or an account with blank or obvious password.
  4. Select strong passwords which are not easily guessed. Keep them secret; don’t send them in e-mail or write them down where people might find them. Change them regularly.
