  • Choose a good one
  • Change it regularly
  • Don’t share it

Before choosing a password, please read the Guidelines for Password Selection. This will help you choose a secure password and reduce the chance of having  your password selection rejected.

Remember, you are responsible for anything done with your UCInetID. Don’t share your password with anyone!

Password Change Notifications

Beginning Winter 2016, you will receive a password change notification via email if your password has not been changed in more than 12 months.   You will have until the end of the month to change your password or risk having your UCInetID deactivated.  You will receive two more reminder emails. Deactivated UCInetIDs will need to be reactivated with a new password before they can be used again.

Inactive accounts may be disabled after six months of inactivity.  If your account has been disabled, you may reactivate it by visiting the UCInetID Activation page.
