How do I choose a secure password?
Passwords in DISCO are required to be at least six characters long and contain at least one number, but we strongly recommend a longer password, containing upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters. The longer your passwords the better.
In addition, we strongly recommend you enable MFA in your DISCO. There is information on how to do this here.
We also perform a check on all passwords to ensure they have not been exposed in data breaches anywhere else on the internet. If your password has previously been in a breach, you will see this message. We will require you to choose a different password before you can proceed.
If you see this message and have chosen a password that you are also using on other applications, for example your email inbox, we strongly encourage you to change that password everywhere. Passwords that have been exposed in data breaches are more likely to be used by bad actors to attempt to gain access to personal accounts.
Finally, please have a read of your security responsibilities as a DISCO user.
