Resetting your password

If you are an account user and have entered your password incorrectly or forgotten it, you can request for your password to be reset or unlocked.

User account login locked

If you enter the incorrect password five times, your login will be automatically locked on the fifth attempt. Your account administrator can unlock your user login.

Unlocking the user login will automatically reset the password.

Dependent upon your PPSR account settings your new password notification may be emailed to you via an automated notification or it may display on screen to your account administrator who will provide it to you.

If there is more than one account administrator assigned to the PPSR account and the lock affects an account administrator another account administrator can unlock the user. Alternatively, PPSR accounts with only one account administrator can contact us to have their logins unlocked.

Reset your password

Go to account login.

Click forgot your password.

The forgotten password screen will appear. Enter your username and click continue to retrieve your secret questions.

You will then have to answer your secret questions.
