Most students, some faculty and staff now need to change Purdue passwords only once a year

Most students and some faculty and staff will now change their Purdue passwords every 365 days instead of every 180 days. In conjunction with this change, recommended by two campus committees, faculty and staff may now take advantage of Purdue's two-factor authentication service known as BoilerKey, a smartphone app that generates secondary login credentials for extra security.
