Why do I need a password?
Your password is one of two basic elements that the standard service mode of the MicroStrategy security subsystem uses to protect your data from exposure to unauthorized individuals. If other users learn your password, your data is subject to unauthorized viewing or manipulation.

Why did my password expire?
As a precaution against inadvertently revealing your password to others, you should change it periodically. For this reason, the system occasionally requires you to change your password, if the administrator has enabled this feature.
