Users to be prompted for UMICH account recovery info


Resetting a forgotten UMICH (Level-1) password can be easy—but only if you’ve set up account recovery information ahead of time. When you save your account recovery information—a non-university email account and/or your mobile phone—we then know where to send your password-reset code in case you ever forget your password.

To make this process easier, ITS will begin gradually rolling out a new reminder prompt later this summer. Sometime in the next year, when you log in through the Weblogin page, you’ll be prompted to set or check your UMICH account recovery information. You can ask to be reminded later or dismiss the prompt if you are in a hurry.

There’s no need to wait for the prompt. You can set your account recovery information anytime at UMICH Account Management.
