The password we all use to access email, University PC's and the WiFi system is required to be a strong password. This generally means a password over a minimum length and with a variety of characters. For example, a short password like 'mum' is simpler to crack than a longer one like 'Reindeer#Flotilla'.
To assist students and staff in maintaining secure passwords the University have set up an online Password Reset Manager system, of a similar Q&A type many banks and Internet service providers use for forgotten/expired passwords.
Imagine the following situation, your are expecting important information to be emailed out but you cannot login to your email while you are on holiday, teaching practice or similar so are unable to come into Uni to change your password!! If you have forgotten your password or locked your account you will noit be able to access LS, Library online resources or upload to Turnitin!!
We have the answer for you, the Marjon Password Reset Manager (PRM) allows you to change your password when you like, great! However, as with all great systems you must set up a profile PRIOR to using the Marjon Password Reset Manager (PRM). This has to be completed before you forget your password.
