I forgot my username/password. How do I retrieve it?
Go to the Change Forgotten Password Page and be prepared to enter in your social security number (or 999 number if you are an international student), Last Name, and Date of Birth. It may take up to an hour for the school systems to recognize the password change, so be patient. It is reccomended that you change your reset password within 24 hours. If you are unable to reset it, please contact the Help Desk, and we can reset your password for you.
I don't have a BYU-Idaho username or password! How do I get one?
I just got my username and password, but I cannot log in! It keeps giving me an error.
Generally accounts take a minimum of one hour to activate. We ask you to be patient during this time, as we know there is much to be done. If you have been waiting that long already, please call the Help Desk at (208) 496-9000 for further help.
Password Changing Process:
The Password Lock out policy is if your account have been attempted 10 times it will be locked out for 5 minutes. After that 5 minutes it will be unlocked automatically unless something is still attempting to access your account. That can include email, wireless profiles, mapped drives, or mapped printers. Please keep that in mind as you change passwords. Below is a list of the common places passwords get saved that must be changed.
The first place to change your password is: (Everyone)
My.byui.edu (from the login screen, link just below and to the right of the Login Button)
After changing password on My.byui.edu makes sure you log off the computer and log back on with new password. If this doesn’t happen you could be locked out of your computer and need to hard reboot.
