New Service Allows Online Resetting of Passwords

A new password reset service was implemented on August 18. With this service, anyone with a UC Davis computing account can now change their Kerberos password or reset a forgotten password via the Web. Account holders must first access the Web-based form with their Kerberos passwords and answer two or more questions from the list. Answers to these questions will be used later to verify their identity when they return to change or reset their passwords. Online Password Reset is now an integral part of the account set-up and password change processes (to access these services, see the UC Davis Computing Accounts Web site at http://computingaccounts.ucdavis.edu).

To set up this service, account holders will need to know their Kerberos passwords. Those who have forgotten their passwords prior to setting up this service will need to take a photo ID to the IT Express office in 182 Shields Library (for office hours, see http://itexpress.ucdavis.edu).
