5. Password

  • For a new account, the password must be altered as soon as possible to a private choice. The account will be locked if the password is not changed within 7 days.
  • The password must be changed every time there is any change to the list of people authorised to use the account (including the owner).
  • Any misuse of the account by previous committee members through failure to change the password will be the responsibility of the new IT Officer in the first instance.
  • It is not possible to use the security question/answer route to recover from a lost password. This is because the society account is not associated with a personal University Card. You can change the password in the normal way if you know the old one. If the password is lost, you need to get a new one from the IT Services Help Centre and you will need to see a Registration specialist to do this. IT Services will only release a password to a properly registered user of the account.
