- 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
- 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
- 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 OUCS
Help Centre and you will need to see a Registration specialist to do this. OUCS
will only release a password to a properly registered user of the account.
