How do I choose a good password for my UPPMAX account?

NSC has a really good webpage about account security. Read the NSC webpage on security.

We have a few tips here as well: 

  • Don't reuse your password anywhere else.
  • Check your password against published lists of known passwords (e.g. this one). If it's there, use a new password.
  • Avoid logging in from untrusted networks.
