How do I change my password?

To change your FlashLine password:

Step 1.   Log into FlashLine from either http://www.kent.edu or http://flashline.kent.edu.  Can't login?  Get user name and password help here.

Step 2.  Click on the "My Account" tab.




Step 3.  Under "My Identity," click on "Change FlashLine Password."


Step 4.  Under "Set Password," type your new password twice for verification, and click "Submit."


The following characters are not permitted in passwords:

Must: Must Not:
  • Contain at least one upper case letter
  • Contain at least one lower case letter
  • Contain at least one number 
  • Be at least 8 characters long
  • @ (at symbol)
  • & (ampersand)
  • “ (double quotes)
  • ' (single quote)
  • # (pound or number key)
  • Space (the space key)

If you use any of these characters in your FlashLine password, you will not be able to log in to certain systems even if your password is synchronized.
