Forgot your password? You can now reset it yourself!

Is your mobile phone number in MyAccount? Not only is a mobile phone number important for emergency notifications, but it can also be used to reset a forgotten password for your Brown username by following the Forgot Password link on most Brown login pages. Enter your mobile phone number at http://brown.edu/myaccount today, and don't forget to put a password lock on your phone to stay secure. 

Maybe you’ve been meaning to make your password more secure but are afraid you’ll forget it. With this new feature, if you forget your strong password, you can always reset it yourself instead of having to visit the Computing Accounts and Passwords office in person. We recommend choosing a 10 character (or longer) password.

This video shows how the new self-service password reset works:
