New password protocol for grid guest account users

March 29, 2018

Every year, HBS IT requires that users change their passwords for security protocol. As a guest of HBS, you will be getting the following email below once you hit the one year mark of using HBS resources. Please note that the procedure for changing your password is different from the instructions outlined below because you do not have access to the “myHBS” portal.

Instead, please follow this link to change your password: https://account.hbs.edu/useradmin/bschool/passwd.html

Please send us an email at research@hbs.edu if you have any questions.
