Why is my account locked? – I’ve updated my password, why can’t I login?
The best fix is a reset using the “Forgot username or password?” on the login page.
Multiple failed login attempts will lock your account. You will need to reset your password using the "Forgot username or password?" on the login page.
(Customer service does not have access to reset your password.)
Password requirements: (Click the show password icon on the login page)
- at least eight (8) characters,
- one uppercase letter,
- one lowercase letter,
- one number,
- and one special character (e.g. !@#$%^&*).
If you’ve successfully updated your password and are still having difficulty logging in, check that the caps lock or numbers lock is on or off appropriately.
You can also check your auto-fill or auto-complete settings, password management settings, or security software interference.
Other things to try:
- Use a different browser
- Sign in from a different device (i.e., tablet, smartphone, laptop, …)
- Type the password manually if it’s being auto-filled
If you are using the Professional and Enterprise Edition or Internet Explorer, Windows may be saving an old or incorrect password.
