In the coming weeks and months, we will be tightening controls and enforcing periodic password changes on IT Account NetIDs. To support this, please change your IT Account NetID password if you have not done so in the past year. It is extremely important that you also register an additional non-UMass email address in SPIRE to allow you to remotely reset a forgotten or expired password. Note: If you do not register an additional email address in SPIRE, you will need to come to IT User Services to reset an expired password.
