How to change your Computer Password

Computer passwords are managed within the operating system (unlike our previous system - Jumpcloud). If you would like to change your password or are locked out from a password expiration, try the following:

  • If your computer seems to have locked you out, try restarting the computer.
    • Macbooks tend to lock out users when their password expires, but a reboot will force it to prompt for the reset.
  • Changing password in Windows:
    • In Windows settings, navigate to Accounts -> Sign-In Options. 
    • On the Sign-in options page, click on "Password" to reveal the "Change" button.
    • Click "Change" and follow the prompts to update your password.
    • Please do not use a Microsoft Account on your computer for Windows login.
