About passwords

A password change is required every 60 days.

If a password is not changed in the 60 days, it expires.

If you forget your password, call 206.221.5000 to get a new temporary password.

Passwords must be at least 4 characters long.

When any error occurs on the Password Change Screen, retype all passwords, starting at the beginning.

If you do not wish to change your password after the Password Change Screen appears, type “X” in the box at the lower right and press <Enter>.
