Your Initial Password is Temporary

Your initial password is your date of birth in YYYYMmmDD format.

  • Mmm is the first 3 letters of the Month
    • January = "Jan", February = "Feb", etc.
  • Example: January 1, 1993 = 1993Jan01

Your initial password gives you only 5 grace login sessions, so the first thing you need to do is create a new password.
