Question: How do I change my School Loop password?
Your original School Loop password was selected to be secure but easy to remember, but you are welcome to change it.
Changing your School Loop password does not change your password for uploading grades, which remains set to the original password you were given when you got your School Loop account. For details see How do I get a grades web page and a password? in the Setup for Grade Uploading section.
|Step||Instructions||Example or Picture||Notes|
|1||Go to your portal page.|
|2||Click the Gear icon at the top right.|
|3||Click the Go button under Account Management.|
|4||Click the Change Your Password button.|
|5||Fill in your current password once and your new password twice.||PPasswords must be at least 6 characters and have at least one digit. Pick a password that you can remember but that isn't easy for others to guess. Combining two unrelated words, e.g. "flipflop73dessert", will produce a safer password than a single word. A password like "abc123" is too easily guessed.
The safest password is a long strings with no words or patterns, which you'd have to record somewhere so you can remember it. Some people use a program called a Password Manager to keep track of their passwords and allow them to use very safe passwords like wAuv3aDs9Yi4Grud.
