Safeguarding Your Cisco.com Password - UPDATE
New Feature Helps You Better Protect Your Profile
Passwords are important for both Cisco and Cisco.com users in providing protection for user profiles. Using a secure password helps prevent unauthorized users from accessing your Cisco accounts, and protects your company's investment with Cisco. With this in mind, Cisco recommends you change your Cisco.com password frequently to help protect your Cisco.com profile.
Beginning in August 2004, if you are a Cisco.com user and log in from the Cisco.com homepage, you will receive a pop-up reminder to change your Cisco.com password. We are providing you with this reminder to help you better protect your profile.
