In order to keep passwords strong and data secure, LSE has a policy that all passwords must be changed annually. In line with this policy, all staff and students who have not changed their passwords within the last year will be prompted to do so via email. If your password has expired, you will be unable to access LSE resources until it is changed.
For more about the password policy and the annual change, see Password Change. For tips on creating a strong password, see Your LSE Password.
Any emails IMT send you reminding you to change your password will be automatically generated, and contain text only. They will not contain any clickable links, will not ask you for your password and will only provide instructions on how you can change your password yourself. Phishing emails may attempt to trick you into clicking links, providing personal information or contain harmful attachments.
If you suspect an email to be malicious, please contact the IT Service Desk immediately. See our Phishing advice pages for more information.
