Set up Your Options for the new Password Reset Tool


The Password Reset Tool allows you to reset your UTORid password if you have forgotten it.

You can choose from the following methods:

  • SMS text message to a mobile phone
  • Message sent to an alternate email address
  • In-Person only (if you choose this option, you will need to visit a Help Desk to reset your password)

For the first two methods, a security code will be sent to you which you use to verify your identity on the password reset web page. If you choose In-Person Only you will need to visit a Help Desk.

If you choose either the SMS text message or alternate email address option you may change your account recovery method yourself.
