How to have students sync their passwords in order to activate their GAFE account



On a PC that’s turned on, hold down Ctrl-Alt-Del. (this will not work on Macs or Chromebooks)

Click Switch User

Click Other User

Enter ID and password and click the right arrow



Many students - but not all - will receive an error message stating that their password has expired. Hit OK to reset password.

For those who don’t receive that message, hit Ctrl-Alt-Del again and select Change Password.

Enter a new password - something easy to remember, but difficult for others to figure out.

Then click the right arrow button to complete the process.

If you’re stuck, try coming up with a combination of two random words (animal, food, flower, household item) and a two- or three-digit number.
