Unified password

Last modified by Denisa Wernerová on 07.06.2024 10:54

For access to SSO, university computer network and all others information systems,  which are included in the unified password, you need a personal number and password.

The username of the student / employee is assigned to you when enrolling to study / conclude an employment relationship.

Changing the password

Once you set a password, it will remain valid for 1 year or until you change it again.

1. I know my current password

If you want to change your current password and remember it, do so on the password change form Initial password setup.

2. I forgot my password

Users who have not yet set a password or have forgotten their password can set a new password by generating a verified code.
The prerequisite is a filled-in telephone number in personal info.

Change procedure:

  • Fill in your login name (e.g. abc1234). Check the "I'm not a robot" box and click "Generate the verification code". Then you will receive an SMS with a verification code, which you write in the form for changing the password. Then fill in the field for the new password and click on "Set password".

I did not receive the verification code

a) You have the wrong phone number set in your profile (e.g. typo, change number) or not saved at all. If you are a student, contact your study department to request a telephone contact adjustment. If you are an employee, contact the Card Centre or your faculty administrator to set a password, and then update your contact information in your personal info.

b) An SMS message cannot be sent to your phone number - we send SMS to EU mobile numbers. Other users must have a contact email listed in their personal info so that they can set a password. This only works if user is setting up their password for the first time.

Reset password with card

If you forget your password, you can have it reset to a temporary password after verifying your employee / student card.
After the reset, it is necessary to change the temporary password to your own new password immediately
Personal presence at the password reset to check your identity is a necessary precaution to prevent misuse of this tool and unauthorized access to your account. Likewise, the password cannot be sent by e-mail.
