Entering your login and password

Keep in mind these points when you are logging in:

  • USM Anywhere requires all passwords to have a minimum length of 8 characters and a maximum length of 128 characters.
  • The password must contain numerical digits (0–9).
  • The password must contain uppercase letters (A–Z).
  • The password must contain lowercase letters (a–z).
  • Special characters, such as hyphen (-) and underscore ( _ ) are supported but optional.

The messages you can have are these:

  • Password successfully updated. Please log in with your new password.
  • Your session has expired.
  • The username or password you entered is incorrect.
  • The server responded incorrectly.
  • There was an error with your security token. Try refreshing your page or contact support.
