This guide summarizes the scenarios in which you may be locked out of EWS workstations.
Your AD password requires changing once a year. If it needs changed, you will not be able to log into any EWS workstation.
Visit https://identity.uillinois.edu/ to change your password.
If Technology Services (the central campus IT organization) detects that your account has been compromised, your password will be scrambled.
See this Tech Services knowledgebase article for more information: https://answers.illinois.edu/illinois/63517.
If you've entered an incorrect password too many times within a short period while logging into any campus service, then your account will be automatically and temporarily locked. Frequently this is due to a personal device repeatedly attempting to log into your account (such as connecting to IllinoisNet on your phone or laptop) using a saved password which is incorrect or outdated. Always make sure to update or remove any saved passwords on all of your devices after changing your password.
