ITS Announces Google Apps Security Upgrade
To enhance security, the minimum length of Google Apps account passwords has been increased from six to eight characters. Your Google Apps account password is used to access SLU e-mail, calendar, docs, and sites. Services and access will continue uninterrupted for current Google Apps users. If you currently have a six-character password, simply continue to use your password.
No additional action will be required until your next password change.
New SLU Google Apps accounts assigned to incoming students, faculty, staff, and guests on or after March 14, will be subject to the new password requirement for security. The default password will be "Id" followed by the last six (6) digits of the person's Banner ID number. For example, if the last 6 digits of their Banner ID are 123456, the default password will be Id123456.
