New Desk Phone Password Requirements

Starting Wednesday, Feb. 6 − Change Yours When It Expires

If you check voicemail on your desk phone, be ready for new password requirements coming Wednesday, Feb. 6. Beginning on this date, you must use a six-digit number that’s hard for others to guess.

We’re doing away with passwords like “123456” that are easy for scammers to hack or use for long-distance fraud. If you get voicemails in Outlook, everything stays the same. For questions, contact the IT Help Desk at 832.556.5555 or

Important: You don’t need to change your password Feb. 6, unless it expires that day. When yours expires after Feb. 6, be sure to use the new requirements.
