In the coming weeks, we are launching Password Self-Service, a new system that will allow students, faculty, and staff on the University network to reset their own network passwords quickly and independently. The tool will replace our existing Personal Account Manager (PAM) and eliminate the need to contact the ITS help desk when passwords are forgotten or accounts are locked.
With Password Self-Service, users can set up a series of personalized challenge questions to be answered if a password or account issue arises. The text and alternate email address are other means to unlock or reset an account. You can choose to either use challenge questions, use text messaging or use an alternate email account to proceed.
Detailed information, including instructions for setting up your challenge questions, will be provided in the coming weeks. Check back for more information.
