Password Requirements for Staff/Faculty Accounts
Posted by Casey Spencer on 08/18/14 9:07 AM
FOR FACULTY & STAFF ACCOUNTS ONLY - This information does not pertain to student accounts unless the student is a DU employee/workstudy.
You may be noticing prompts or warnings regarding password expiration when logging onto a DU owned PC.
As a result of the Faculty and Staff Password policy implemented in August of 2013, employees that have not changed their password in the previous twelve months will need to do so.
This policy does not affect student accounts at this time.
There are two main methods to change your DU network password.
1. On a DU owned computer, select CTRL+ALT+DEL and choose "Change a Password." Note: This will only work on a DU owned machine that is on our network.
2. From the Internet, you can change your password using Password Self Service. The web address for this is: password.davenport.edu
When using password self-service, YOU MUST ENROLL prior to using the password reset function.
Please note the password requirements for faculty/staff below:
Ten characters or more - and three of the following four:
Your password can't be one you have used before and cannot contain your name or user ID.
Hints/Tips: Even though it's perfectly fine to use special characters in your password such as # symbol, etc...this may slow you down when using yourpassword at a multi-function printer for making copies. In addition, while your network password and Banner system passwords are different, Banner users should never use a special character when resetting passwords in Banner.
Examples of ten character passwords that meet the requirement for our network but do not contain a special character would be:
Samaritan1 or a pass-phrase such as: IhatePizza2
These examples are ten characters or more and contain one or more capital letters and a number along with lower-case letters.

Clearing Your Web Browsing History/Cache/Temp Files

Many issues are resolved by clearing your web browser's cache (web browsing history). A quick way to do this is a keyboard shortcut that works on IE, Firefox, and Chrome.
Open the browser to any web page and hold CTRL and SHIFT while tapping the DELETE key. (This is NOT CTRL, ALT, DEL).
The dialog box will open to clear the browser. Set it to clear everything and click Clear Now or Delete at the bottom.
Internet Explorer 9
For most Mac OS users using Safari, these directions should work for emptying caches:
