This page describes how to find your Swestore username and how to set your password.

  • Click Accounts in the left hand menu to show the Accounts page.
  • Note your Username for the Swestore resource.
  • To initiate the password change/reset process, click Reset Password
  • You are now presented with the Prove Your Identity to Swestore page.
  • Click Prove My Identity to Swestore
  • You are now redirected to the Swestore password change page.
  • Choose a new password unique to Swestore.
    • NEVER use the same password for multiple resources!
    • It's better to use a long password that you are comfortable typing than a short password with lots of weird special characters that you get wrong.
  • Please be patient as it might take some time to move on to the next screen.
  • Enter the new password in the Password and Verification text entry boxes and click Set.
  • The page will reload and display if the password change was successful or not.
    • If the text Password change was successful is displayed you have completed the password change procedure, close the web browser tab/window.
    • If an error message is displayed, note if there is any specific complaints (ie. password length), correct and retry.
    • The password should be at least 8 characters long.
    • Note that there is a waiting period of one hour between subsequent password changes.
