We encourage all students at Assiniboine Community College (ACC) to reset their network login password as early as possible. Passwords are set on new accounts based on date of birth and should be changed and never be shared with anyone else.
Your network login account grants you access to college computers, email, and your personal and financial information like tax forms on MyACC. Protecting this information is something Information Technology Services (ITS) takes very seriously, but you also have a role to play by creating a strong, secure password. See the ITS article on creating a secure password for tips. Your password can be changed from the Assiniboine College Password Reset Website.
Wellness Tip for Cyber Security
Use an affirmation as your password so that every time you type your password you remind yourself about something positive (for example: Life13Great!).
Phishing and Spam
Email phishing and spam are common methods to be targeted for attack. ITS will never ask you for your password by email or phone. You can learn more about phishing and how to spot phishing emails from this LinkedinLearning Course and from the ITS Knowledgebase Article.
Want to increase the protection of your social media and banking accounts? Setup multi- or two-factor authentication today to better protect your important logins! Please note that ACC email and computing resources should be used based on the college acceptable use policy for computer resources.
