Windows 10 Tip: Do you know your passwords?

This month campus workstations will upgrade to Windows 10. This will make your workstation function as though it were brand new. If you take advantage of your web browser’s capabilities to save your passwords, you will want to make sure that you know those passwords. You will need to re-enter them after your workstation is upgraded.

Take time now to gather those passwords or go through password recovery processes to reset passwords that you do not know before your workstation is upgrades (see the rollout schedule). Use the following list as a starting point for important sites that require passwords:

  • Social Media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogs, etc)
  • Financial Institutions (banks, credit cards, etc)
  • Professional Websites such as community forums
  • Training Websites
  • Google
  • Pharmacy
  • Benefits (ERS, UnitedHealthcare, etc)
