Changing your password

If you logged into the IET website, you can change your password via MyIET, My account, then select the 'personal details' tab. Once you have entered and verified your new password, scroll down and click on 'update'.

Password reminder

If you cannot remember your password, you can reset it by going to the Reminder page. You will need to enter your registered email address and surname. If you are an IET member you will also be required to to confirm your identity.

A unique secure password reset link will then be sent to your registered email address, which you will need to use within 48 hours of receipt. When you click on this link, a password reset page will open in your browser where you will be able to enter and verify a new password.

You will then be able to log in with your user name and new password.

If you cannot access your registered email address, please contact us.

Help with choosing a password

Your password must have at least 12 characters, containing both uppercase and lowercase letters, at least two numbers, at least one special character such as printable punctuation marks and must not contain your user name, name or first part of your email address.

If your new password does not meet these criteria, you will be shown an error message. Please read the message - it explains the cause of the problem and recommended course of action. For example, the password form will reject entries that are too short, or don’t contain any numbers.
