How will I know that my password is about to expire?

All UWin Account holders are required to change their password at least once every semester (every 120 days). Users whose passwords have expired, will not be allowed access to any systems using LDAP for authentication until they change their password.

E-mail Notifications

You will be notified through e-mail when your password expiry date is approaching, starting with the first notification to be sent 30 days before your password expiration date. Subsequent reminders will be sent periodically closer to the expiration date:

  • 14 days before your password expiration date
  • Daily reminders in the week leading up to day of expiry.

This e-mails will come from the noreply@uwindsor.ca address with a subject line "Warning: UWinID Password change required." See Files section on the right for a screen shot of a sample e-mail notification.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For security reasons, these e-mails will *not* include any links which would give them the appearance of a phishing message.

Login Page Warning

Starting at 30 days before your password expiration date, a waring message will be displayed on the login page urging you to change your password.

My UWin Account Page

At any time, you can go to uwindsor.ca/myuwinaccount to see your password expiry date and when was the last time that you changed your password.
