MyID Login changes from 7th January

 

The way you login to MyID (myid.reading.ac.uk) is changing to bring it in line with the way you access other systems, such as Office365.

 

From midday on Thursday 7th January you will be prompted to login to MyID via a Microsoft screen. You should enter your login details in the format:

<username>@reading.ac.uk

(where <username> is your University username) followed by your password where prompted.

 

When accessing MyID from off campus you will also now be prompted for Multi Factor Authentication and for now will also still need to be connected to the VPN.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please emailĀ IT Service Desk.

Please note that we will be carrying out some essential maintenance and security updates on the University’s VPN service on Tuesday 12 January, between 1800-1900.

This essential work will mean that our VPN will be unavailable during this time. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and remember to save any work and log out prior to this change.

After the work has been completed, you will receive notification of an update from Pulse Secure on the next occasion you connect to the VPN.

Many thanks for your patience.
