Multi-Factor Authentication

Resetting your password

One benefit to having MFA enabled is you can reset your own password without contacting support:

  1. Choose the region your credentials are from.
    1. For North American clients use https://na.windwardoncloud.com
    2. For Australian clients use https://au.windwardoncloud.com
  2. Click “Forgot your password?”
  3. Enter your username (without your na.windwardoncloud.com or au.windwardoncloud.com) and the CAPTCHA.
  4. Enter the code from your authenticator.
  5. Enter your new password and the CAPTCHA and click Reset Password.
This will also unlock your account if it has been locked out from too many attempts.
