FlexMLS Increased Password Security Update 11/29/2017

In an effort to improve security, the process for resetting your password from the login screen will be more intuitive and user-friendly. Additionally, the minimum requirements for your FlexMLS password are getting stronger. When you set a new password, it will require a minimum of 6 characters - containing at least one character and one number - and you will no longer be limited to using only 8 characters. This change will take effect on Wednesday, November 29th.

NOTE: You will not be forced to change your password on November 29, and you can continue to use your current password, even if it does not meet the new minimum strength requirements. You will only be required to use a password that meets the minimum strength requirements when you change your password after November 29.

WHAT WILL CHANGE: Passwords must be between 6 and 100 characters AND contain a minimum of one character AND one letter. Additionally, the most commonly used password - such a your username or using words like 'password' - are not permitted. Using previous passwords is still not permitted.

When changing your password, you will receive a prompt to meet these requirements if the new password you've entered doesn't meet the minimum strength requirements.  

The process to update your password while you're currently logged into FlexMLS will not change. Use the Menu button to navigate to the My Profile link under the Preferences section. Click on Security and click the Change Password link. Enter your current password, and then enter a new password that meets the minimum security requirements.
