Guidelines for creating a Net ID and Password
- A Net ID is used to identify and authenticate you to BYU applications. The Net ID must begin with a letter and be between 5 and 8 characters long. All letters must be lower-case. All numbers are allowed. No other characters besides letters and numbers are allowed. You will NOT be allowed to change this Net ID, so you SHOULD NOT choose something flippant or in bad taste.
- The password, in conjunction with your Net ID, will allow you access to certain university systems. Your password must be ten or more characters and contain at least one number and one letter. The password is case sensitive and can include either upper case or lower case letters. Spaces are not allowed but other characters such as @, &, and * are. Sharing your password with another person can put you at risk for identity theft.
