Self-Service Password Reset
Making resetting a forgotten password easier, convenient and more secure
As part of Enterprise Transformation, Identity Access Management improves account security and maintenance through Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR).
SSPR enables you to reset, unlock and change your password independently with the added security of having an extra verification method, like a phone number or passcode.
Verification methods must be defined by September 25, 2018.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Will the September 25 deadline impact my ability to login to all network resources?
