After you've changed your password:
First, forget the network on your mobile devices
If you connect to CcSecure, your laptop, phone, tablet, all need to forget the network. They store your old password, which you will update once you have changed your password.
If you are a faculty or staff member who is connected to Staff Wi-Fi, you do not need to forget the network. Just continue to change your password. If you experience frequent lockouts, check out our page on how to prevent account lockouts.
