New Password Reset Options in PAWS
Did you know that you now have three options for resetting your NSID password if you forget it?
We all have a lot of passwords in our lives. Students are no exception, and their university NSID is high on the list of passwords they don’t want to be without. Until recently, password resets have required the assistance of someone at the ITS Help Desk. Now you can store three types of information with the university that will allow you to reset your own password should you lose or forget it: 1) an alternate (non-U of S) email address, 2) a set of secret questions, and 3) a cell number. The last is the university’s newest addition to its growing suite of mobile-friendly options—allowing you to receive a password reset code anywhere, anytime, even on the go.
It’s easy to change or update your password reset and notifications information; simply click the “Mobile” link at the bottom of the Announcements channel on your PAWS home page, then add your choice of information in the appropriate fields. If you ever forget your NSID password, click the “Forgot your password?” link on the PAWS login page. With stored reset information, getting back in to PAWS won’t be a hassle at all.
