Before changing your ONYEN password, make sure to turn off cell phones and other mobile devices that connect to your campus e-mail. If a mobile device tries to authenticate to the mail server with your old password, it could lock you out of your e-mail account.
- Go to https://onyen.unc.edu and click on Manage password to change your password.
- The notes displayed on the ONYEN website after changing your password are also listed at the bottom of this document.
Press the Windows key + L to lock your computer. Unlock the computer with your new password. Once you perform this step, your Windows account password will be synchronized with your ONYEN password.
- You do not have to wait on this message before locking your computer, but doing so before receiving the message may not always work. If it does not, simply wait a moment and try again.
