Change password

The following procedure will update your USI password. This password is used in the following contexts: for accessing your PC, email, and Microsoft 365 services (e.g., Teams).

Please refer to the following page for edu-ID password change.

What you need to do?

1. Open the following link https://cloud.usi.ch/adfs/portal/updatepassword
2. Enter your USI username (e.g. username@usi.ch)
3. Enter your current password
4. Enter the new password twice
5. Confirm with Submit.

The password must be at least:

  • 10 characters long
  • newer than 1 year

It is also required that, to be considered reasonably secure, it contains characters from at least three of the following categories:

  • uppercase letters from A to Z
  • lowercase letters from a to z
  • digits from 0 to 9
  • special characters (e.g. ~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"'<>,.?/ )

Do you own a mobile device?

Remember to update your password for example in your email client, printer authentication, VPN and wifi access.
If you have an Apple computer, remember to update your password in your keychain.
