    2. Close any programmes that are still open.
    3. Go to the Account portal on your laptop or computer and change your password.
    4. Important: You must log out immediately after you have changed your password!
    5. Wait 10 minutes
    6. Your password has now been changed. Reconnect to the internet or turn flight mode off on your devices.
    7. Use your new password to log in on all of your devices. For this purpose, you can use the manuals shown below.

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​NOTE: Do you work off-campus on a Radboud laptop? Then log in with your old password first. Then start eduVPN and lock the laptop (key combination Windows + L). Now log in with the new password.
