On IU List, how do I change or reset my password?
The first time you visit the IU List service, click the
login? link and then enter your email address. IU Link will send
you an email message; follow the directions in the message to create
an IU List password.
IU list passwords must be at least eight characters in length, and contain at least one number and one letter.
Note: Do not use your Indiana University Network ID passphrase as your IU List password; doing so could compromise your information and other data on the IU network.
Changing your password
Log into IU List and click
Your preferences. In the
"Changing your password" section, select a new password and then click
Resetting a forgotten password
From the IU List login screen, click
Lost password?, and then
enter your email address. An email message will be sent to that
address, with a link allowing you to choose a new password.
The password feature is only required for the web component of IU List, if you wish to use it. Important list options are not configurable over email, and most administrative email commands require an email response to an IU List confirmation message.
The IU List system will lock your account after a predetermined number of failed logins, as prevention against unauthorized attempts to control your lists. If this happens, you will need to follow the above sequence to reset your password; you can choose the same password again.
