Password Change

Do you dread changing your E-Verify password? There are few things more frustrating than learning that your password does not meet our security requirements and never knowing which requirements your password failed to meet.

While loosening the password requirements isn’t an option (see note below), we have improved the error messages for when you enter an unacceptable password. If you enter a password that does not meet our requirements, we will tell you which requirements you did not meet and what you need to do to create an acceptable password.

NOTE: U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy sets strict password standards. Check out DHS 4300A Sensitive Systems Handbook for more information (pages 154-155 address password standards).
