Using these instructions, you can change the password associated with your District 207 email address and username. This password should be changed from the default password given to you during account creation, and updated regularly thereafter.
How to change your password
- Navigate to the Password Self-Service website.
- Log in using your username and current password.
- Your username is typically your first initial, full last name, and any number associated with your account. It is the same as everything before the '@' symbol in your D207 email address.
- Once logged in, click the tile that says 'Change Password' with the key icon.
- On this page, input your new password in accordance with the password guidelines. Repeat this password in the 'Confirm Password' box.
- You can click the icon next to 'New Password' to open a list of auto-generated strong passwords. Copy one of these and paste it into the password fields to use it as a password. Make sure you have this new password written down or memorized.
- Click the 'Change Password' button and wait for the webpage to change your account passwords.
- One complete, log out of your Chromebook, Windows desktop, and/or any D207 account services that you are currently logged in to.
- When you log back in, you will need to input your new password. When prompted, use your new password when logging in to any account using your D207 username or email address.
If you are going through this process on a Chromebook, you may be prompted to enter your old password when you log back in. You can enter your old password into the box, however if this process does not work, you can bypass this message to access your device. Click on "Forgot Old Password" and then click the blue "Proceed Anyway" box. Your Chromebook will set up as a new device, but your settings, bookmarks, and extensions will re-sync and you can pick back up where you left off. This method does delete local data, like files in your 'Downloads' folder. If you need to permanently save files, make sure they are uploaded to your Google Drive.
