User Action Required: MyAccount Password Management Tool Launches on 10/16


ET&S Strategic Communication

The process you currently use to change your USNH account password is going away. On Saturday, October 16, 2021, beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST, Enterprise Technology & Services will implement a new password tool called “MyAccount.” The existing password tools will be retired at this time and replaced with the new MyAccount tool for managing your USNH user account and password.
