In an effort to improve your security, please update your password if it is shorter than 6 characters!

(All new members are now required to meet this minimum).

Here's how: Click on "Settings" in the blue left-side navigation. Click the "Edit" link next to the Password field and make your updates. Be sure to click "Save" to save your changes.

A minimum of 6 characters is required!
Passwords should not:
· solely contain sequences or repeated characters (e.g.,12345678, 222222, abcdefg)
· adjacent keyplacement [qwerty])
· be common: (e.g., 'password,' 'password123,' 'changeme')
