[Faccus] You may need to change your password in WatIAM

What's happening? The following campus IT services are switching over to use your Nexus account and password.

*         Eduroam (wireless)

*         uw-unsecured (wireless)

*         LEARN

*         JobMine

*         Quest

*         myHRinfo

*         myPENSIONinfo

*         VPN

*         DialUp

*         Central Authentication Service (CAS)

(Currently, these services use your ADS<http://windows.uwaterloo.ca/ADS.asp> account password.)

Who may be affected: Faculty, staff and students

When: Wednesday, September 19, 2012

What do I need to do?

*         If you have changed your password in WatIAM within the last 18 months, you should be fine. (Since November 2010 a password change in WatIAM changed both your ADS and Nexus password.) No need to read further.

*         If your password is older, then you need to set your password in WatIAM<http://watiam.uwaterloo.ca/search/> BEFORE September 19th to avoid problems. If your mobile device and/or computer (e.g. laptop, iPad) connects to the wireless network using your saved userid and password then you will need to update your password on those devices as well.
