Having trouble with your Monash account?

Activating your account

See our step-by-step guide to activating your Monash account from activation to setting up multi-factor authentication (MFA) and other handy self-service options. We strongly recommend you take up the self-service option for back-up codes and password reset - this can save you a lot of time if you forget your password or lose your phone.

Android users setting up MFA from China may encounter problems. Please see the help page at register for MFA from China.

Multi-factor authentication backup codes

If you get locked out of your account because your phone is lost, damaged, or replaced, or if you’ve accidentally deleted the Okta Verify app, you can now use a backup code to reset your MFA and get back into your account.

Password problems?

For any password problems, visit Identity Management Services. You'll also find how to register to change your own password.
