The Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) service will enable you to reset, unlock and change your password independently with the added security of having an extra verification method, like a phone number or passcode. This makes resetting a forgotten password easier, convenient and more secure.

Requirements

  • Access to a non-WPI email account and a phone (mobile or office)
  • Authentication Methods Configured
Note:
The links to setup verification and reset will take you to Microsoft sites.

Configure Authentication Methods

To enable this service, you must first define your verification methods. Follow instructions to Configure Multi-Factor Authentication for a Phone Number and Email.
