All current faculty, staff, alumni and students of Dartmouth have a Dartmouth Account with a corresponding user name (NetID) and password. Your user name (NetID) and password are what identifies you on the Dartmouth network and allows you to authenticate in order to access your email account and other systems. It is your electronic fingerprint. The Dartmouth Directory Manager is a web-based utility designed to allow you to edit selected account and mail settings.

As a responsible member of the Dartmouth community, it is critical you maintain the security of your account. If someone obtains your user name and password, they can log into systems that do not require an additional authentication step for access as if they were you. If you think someone is using your password or that your account may be compromised, you should change your password immediately.

Changing your password affects authentication into any system that uses your NetID (e.g. your email account, OneDrive for Business, Banner Self-Service, Oracle eBusiness Suite, VPN, the Dartmouth Web Authentication page, etc.).

If you use a Windows computer that logs in to the Kiewit domain with your NetID, you should not shut down or restart your computer immediately after changing the password in DartDM. You should first log off your computer then log back in to your computer with your new password. The computer must connected to the Dartmouth network when you log off and log back on.
