It’s Time to Change Your Password

Welcome back to campus! It’s that time of year again. Classes are starting and passwords need to be changed! It is best to change your password occasionally to maintain security for your account.

When you change your password, it must be at least 8 characters long and contain:

  • 1 uppercase letter
  • 1 lowercase letter
  • 1 number
  • 1 special character (!@#$ etc.)

By following these rules, your password will be stronger, and when all of the network passwords are strong then our entire network is safer.

You can change your password from the Outlook Web App (mail.etown.edu) by following these steps:

  1. Sign in.
  2. Click the gear in the top right hand corner.
  3. Select Options.
  4. Expand the General tab on the left.
  5. Select My account (it will be the first option).
  6. Click the Change your password link. It is located right above the Mailbox Usage in the bottom right.

For detailed instructions, visit our Knowledgebase article on Changing Your Network Password.

After you change your password, remember to update the password anywhere you might have it saved including in web browsers (although we do not recommend this practice).

You no longer need to update your password to connect to the Wi-Fi with your mobile devices. This now happens automatically when you reset your email password. Nice, huh?

If you have any questions, feel free to stop by the ITS Helpdesk in Nicarry 125. You can also email us at helpdesk@etown.edu or call us at x3333.
