Secure Payments Password Guidance
Because of the sensitive nature of the data it contains, access to Secure Payments (formerly PCI Wallet) should be closely guarded. While Secure Payments requires users to change their passwords every 90 days, this article gives further instruction on best practices so that unauthorized parties don't gain access to your Secure Payments account.
One of the biggest ways unauthorized access is gained is through password theft. It is the responsibility of each user to safeguard their password. You should change your password if any of the following occur:
- You suspect your password may have leaked.
- Your password was posted anywhere public.
- Any device you use to log in to Secure Payments was lost or stolen.
Always be conscious of password security. Don't share your password with anyone, and use a password manager instead of writing the password down.
