Configuring account settings

Patrick Smith Updated by Patrick Smith

From the Settings tab of their account, authenticated users have the possibility to modify their name, email address, and password.

Modifying your name or email address

Note that your name is optional. To change your name or email address, simply fill out or modify the information in the appropriate field, and don't forget to click on Save my information.

Modifying your password

Under the password section:

  1. Enter your current password
  2. Enter your new password, and below again to confirm it
  3. Click on Change my password

Your password must have a minimum of twelve characters, with at least one letter, one number and one special character. However, the longer the password, the better. Do not reuse passwords, and avoid easy-to-guess phrases or keyboard combinations. Consider using a password manager.

A pass phrase should have a least six unique words in it. For instance, "I think data visualizations are very powerful for data democratization" is a phrase that is robust and relatively easy to remember. (Or rather, it would have been robust, except we just used it as an example!) The same goes for common quotes or song lyrics. See this xkcd post for a visual depiction of similar advice.

Forgot your password?

If you have forgotten your password, go to your portal's login page and click on Forgot my password. You will receive an email with a link to reset your password.

If your email address has changed or for some reason, or you have lost access to your account and cannot recover it through that account's forgotten password process, get in touch with your workspace's administrator in order to contact our support.
