We require the use of strong passwords.  This protects you, ConnectNC and all of the other users on the ConnectNC network.  When weak passwords are used, there is the possibility that they can be easily cracked, making the account vulnerable.  Vulnerable accounts may be used by spammers and phishers.  When that happens, the Internet users who are the victims of the attack launched using your account receive junk mail that could have been prevented! Some ISPs will block our IP addresses after our customers’ accounts were used to spam.  It is for these reasons and more that we require users to have strong passwords.
