How to Complete the MyPassword Profile

Students, faculty and staff can complete a MyPassword profile one of two ways - through the MyPassword site or using a computer when on campus. Since all Baruch users will be asked to complete the MyPassword profile the first time they login to a machine on our wired network, all users are encouraged to login to the MyPassword site ahead of time to setup their security profile.

  1. Using the MyPassword Site
  2. Using a Computer on Campus
