How Changing your RIT Computer Account Password Effects RIT E-mail on your iOS Device

If you receive e-mail on your mobile devices, you will also need to change the password in those e-mail apps. If you have a smartphone, tablet, or laptop that connects wirelessly to our network, you will need to change the password on these devices in order for them to continue to work. To change these passwords, head to the RIT Wireless Instructions site and select your device.

NOTE: If devices continue to attempt to log in with your old password, the repeated unsuccessful login attempts can cause your account to become locked out of some services. As such, we recommend that you only change your password when you have physical access to your mobile devices. Changing stored passwords on these devices as soon as possible after changing your RIT Computer Account password will help to minimize the risk of disruption.
