    Have you changed your Griffith Password?

    You will need to reset your Skype for Business password when changing your Griffith Single Sign-on password.

    Skype for Business automatically logs in using your old password, which will cause you to be locked out of Griffith Single sign-on accounts including WiFi. This issue will be resolved when the new version of Skype for Business is released.
