Password Security

As you may be aware, some significant changes in the way of password security have recently been implemented in Learn-Wise. We think password security is incredibly important to everyone who accesses the system. Consequently we have taken additional steps to ensure passwords remain secure. Here is a recap of the changes to password security implemented to date:

1. Admins do not input a password when creating new Users.

  • When adding an individual new User, there is no password field.
  • When importing Users in bulk, the new template does not have a column for the password.

This is because…

2. Users now receive two automatic emails from Learn-Wise when their account is created: one with their username, and one with a temporary password generated by the system.

  • Users are prompted to change that temporary password the first time they log in.
  • Admins can customize these email templates in Communications > Email Templates.

You can still help users out if they forget their password, but the process is a little bit different. Now, you will reset the password for your users rather than creating a temporary password for them yourself. This new system-generated password is emailed directly to the user.

3. Admins can reset a password for their Users.

  • Go to Accounts > Users
  • Click the edit icon
  • Click Reset Password
  • Click Save

Or…

4. Users can always reset their own passwords by selecting Reset Password from the login screen.
