Process Changed for a GatorLink Password Reset
The GatorLink password reset process changed this summer when the system was upgraded. This upgrade is important for faculty to know about: With an added layer of security, a verification code is now sent to your cell phone or an automated call is sent to your home phone number when resetting your GatorLink password. The verification code is entered to complete a self-service password reset.
Your teaching or research could be interrupted if your current home phone or personal/work cell phone number is not in your myUFL Directory Profile. A trip to the UF Computing Help Desk (132 Hub) will then be required to reset your account. UFIT strongly urges every faculty member to log in to myUFL and confirm that their current home phone or current personal/work cell phone numbers are listed in their Directory Profile, especially if they’ll be traveling or on sabbatical, away from Gainesville. Here’s the bread crumb path to check your Directory profile and update your information: my.ufl.edu > Main Menu > My Account > Update My Directory Profile.
