IFMIS Password Reset Tip: Remember to use a strong password with at least eight characters. This should be a combination of text and numbers and you might also throw some special characters in the mix. A hard-to-guess password is good as it secures your account. It is not advisable to use common names as they are easy to guess. However, if you insert special characters in between, it can turn them into a secure password. When logging in remember that the user name is the email you used when registering your account. If you have always had an issue with setting up a secure password, try this password manager.
