Changing your own email address or password

The ‘My account’ link is shown in the navigation bar at the top of the page. This link directs the user to a page where they can edit their own email address or password. Administrators can manage these details for any user by editing accounts or resetting passwords. The name on a user account can only be updated by an administrator.

To change a password it is necessary for the user to enter their existing password. New passwords must be at least 8 characters long and sufficiently complex to be labelled at least Acceptable strength by the password strength indicator. Some complex passwords are suggested above the new password box.

Changing password

Passwords expire after 6 months, after which time a user is forced to change their password. Users with expired passwords have no access to the system except for the change password screen.
