What To Do After Changing Your NetID Password

Overview

You may have software on your computer(s) or mobile devices which stores your NetID password in order to access various services. When you change your NetID password, you should also be sure to update any software that you have which stores your NetID password to reflect the new password to avoid being locked out of your account.

While not an exhaustive list, this document addresses the most common cases to be found on Brockport computers and devices, organized by platform. Not all of these items will apply to everyone, but be sure to do the ones that apply to you. If you need further help, or have software not included here, please call the HelpDesk at x5151 option1.

Note that if you use Webmail or Outlook on Windows to check your email, you do not need to update any stored passwords - simply begin using the new password the next time that you login.
