This article explains how to reset or change your NetID password if you know your current or expired password and already have a profile set up.
If creating a new password, the following are the guidelines:
- Don’t use a phrase you can find as a single entry in a dictionary.
- Don’t use a password that you have previously used.
- Your password must be 14 15 characters or longer.
- Complexity (additional numbers, special characters, etc.) is no longer required.
- Always use a different password for each of your accounts (work, personal banking, etc.) to ensure that if one account is compromised, your other accounts are still protected and consider acquiring/implementing a password manager to make this easy to manage.
Do not utilize Ctrl-Alt-Del as a password reset method, even if prompted to do so by the Windows Lock Screen.
Accounts should unlock on their own after 30 minutes of last attempted log in. These are steps you can take to try to unlock your NetID account on your own.
