Why & how should I keep my NMIT account secure?

You’re responsible for all activity under your NMIT username & password so don’t share it with anyone else. Try and do the following: 

  • Consider using a passphrase rather than a password, e.g. Imgoing2Betterme@NMIT which is more easily remembered and personal to you, and hugely harder to crack by automated password attacks. 
  • If any emails have links asking you for account details treat them as suspicious first and check them out using the Stop & Think before you Click techniques in other FAQs.
