yes please. what happens when you change your password? thank you


Hi @kevinpriestley and @jk1113,


When you change your RMIT password, you'll also have to update this in any personal devices that may be using it to connect to the network (laptop; tablet; phone, etc).

Some devices will prompt asking for the new password once it detects what it's remebering is incorrect. For most, you'll need to forget the network from the device and simply connect again using your updated credentials.


Hope this helps you out!
