2. PERSONALIZE YOUR PASSWORD:

 

A. Enter a number from 7 up to 15 digits as your personal password, followed by the # sign.

B. Re-enter your personal password followed by the # sign.

Note: AVOID OBVIOUS PASSWORDS: DO NOT use a password:

-Ascending or descending digits (like 1234567 or 7654321)

-The same digits (for example, 0000000)

-Your name or initials (for example 5646363 for John Doe)

-An identification number such as your social security number, ID number or room number

-Do not use your long distance access code. If you have a roommate each of you have a long distance access code assigned to you. You can only have one password per extension and if you use your access code you compromise the security of that code. Should your roommate move you should change your password immediately.
