When do I have to change my Deakin password?

What are the rules?

Staff must change their password every 180 days. Student passwords do not expire.

How do I reset my password?

You can reset expired passwords from your Deakin workstation (PC or Mac). Password changes will automatically integrate and synchronise with services such as Exchange/Outlook, OWA and Keychains.

When will I receive an email reminder?

Staff will receive an email reminding them to change their password with the following days remaining til expiration:

  • 35 days
  • 14 days
  • 7 days
  • 1 day

What happens if my password expires?

Accounts will become disabled if the password expires. Subsequently access to most services will also be disabled.

Your account will move from being in a disabled state to a locked state after four additional weeks. You will then have to contact the IT Service Desk for assistance.
