NPNet Account Security

Please be reminded that with effect from 4 August 2014, the NPNet account will be locked after 10 unsuccessful log-in attempts. The account will be automatically unlocked after 20 minutes. This is to prevent automated brute force attacks.

Avoid storing your NPNet password in your computer. While it may be more convenient, it is less secure as anyone accessing your computer will be able to access your NPNet resources easily. Click here to learn how to remove any stored NPNet password.
