ParklandOne - Password Expiration
ParklandOne passwords will expire one year from the last password creation date (this includes default passwords as well). 30 days prior to the expiration, you will start seeing a popup message after you have signed onto my.parkland.edu showing you your password expiration date. It will advise you to change your password (simply click on the Change Password button).
It is strongly advised that you change your password prior to it expiring annually. Before updating your password, it is recommended that you sign out of Parkland applications (except VPN, if applicable). For employees, it is best to update your password while connected to the Parkland network. If you are working remotely and are on a Parkland device, please make sure that you are connected to the VPN and once the password is changed, sign out of your workstation and sign back in to ensure that the password has synced across the board. To do this, you can lock your machine or restart your computer and then sign back in with your new password. In order to adhere to cybersecurity best practices, it is recommended that you do not allow the browser to store your password. You may need to delete the auto-filled password to clear out the old one.
