Tip of the Week: Change Your Password and Update Your Profile

Have you logged in successfully and checked out ConnectVA’s new site? On Sunday, April 19th, we launched ConnectVA 2.0, a revamped version of our resource hub. There are some new features we know you’ll be excited about, but first, some housekeeping:

How to Change Your Password:

On Sunday, April 19th everyone registered on ConnectVA was sent a system-generated password for the new site.  The title of the email read, “Login with this password to the new ConnectVA site”.  Check your spam folder or contact us if you didn’t receive one or can’t locate it.

Once you’ve logged in with your new system-generated password, and you’re ready to change it to something secure and easy to remember, here’s how to do it, step-by-step:

While logged in, expand your dashboard (orange button). Then, click on Go to Your Profile:

Click on the Settings tab.

Enter your current password (the one that was in the email sent on 4/19/15), and then enter and repeat your desired new password.  The only requirement for the password is that it is 7 characters in length, however, it’s always recommended to use a combination of letters, numbers, uppercase, lowercase and symbols.

Click Save Changes.
