How to change your password

Changing your password regularly is one of the most effective ways to protect your intellectual property. Griffith encourages password changes by emailing notifications when your password is due to expire:

  • 6 months after a password change, or
  • the next time you login after receiving a temporary password, or
  • the next time you login after resetting your password using the password phone service.

Very similar to Forgotten Passwords, but does not need your birth date. Alternatively, the password phone service will require the following details saved in the Staff Portal or myGriffith, at least 24 hours beforehand:

  • Your sNumber
  • Australian mobile phone number
  • Date of birth
  • Australian postcode.
