Delay in Implementation of Westlaw Password Security Change
We sent out an earlier announcement about the new Westlaw password security change. The gist of the new security change is that Westlaw will not support log-in with the alphanumeric Westlaw password (e.g."5922679noql") and will switch to only accepting log-in with a customized personal username and a password (also known as "OnePass" account) sometime in the fall.
However, Westlaw has just delayed implementation of the change so please DO NOT do anything now. You will not be able to comply with the new requirements until further notice from Westlaw. In the meantime you will still be able to log-in with your Westlaw password or existing OnePass username and password. Please stay tuned and apologies for the confusion.
Westlaw Password Security Changes
Westlaw is transitioning away from using the Westlaw password and moving to the web standard of "OnePass" username and password for log-ins to their different portals (lawschool.westlaw.com, TWEN and Westlaw). See here for the timeline for implementing the password security changes and requirements for creating a strong OnePass log-in.
Please note that alphanumeric Westlaw passwords will no longer be active after September 29th 2009. If you now log-in to Westlaw with your Westlaw password, please create a OnePass username and password or update your exisiting OnePass accounts during the grace period.
