I forgot my PennKey password
If you can't remember your PennKey password:
- If you previously enrolled in the PennKey Recovery Service, use the Reset PennKey Password application to reset your password online.
- If you are not enrolled in the PennKey Recovery Service or are unable to answer your security questions, try the PennKey-ASAP application to reset your password online.
My PennKey doesn't work!
Test your PennKey with the Test My PennKey application.
If you can successfully log into the test application:
- Your PennKey username and password are correct and working. You likely lack the necessary authorization to access a PennKey-protected online resource. Contact the owner of that resource for assistance.
If the Test My PennKey application confirms it is not working:
- If you don't know your PennKey username, retrieve it using Forgot My PennKey Username.
- If you forgot your PennKey password and previously enrolled in the PennKey Recovery Service, use Reset PennKey Password to reset your password. Or you can use PennKey-ASAP to reset your password online.
Where's my PennKey setup code?

I want to change my PennKey username
Once a PennName is assigned to a person, that PennName can only be changed under one of the following conditions:
- a legal name change
- a PennName is deemed offensive to the Penn community
- reported email harassment or threats that warrant a change
If you have one of the legitimate reasons above for changing an assigned PennName, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How else can I protect my PennKey?
Add a second layer of protection in addition to your PennKey password by enrolling in Two-Step Verification. Anyone can enroll, while all active Penn faculty, staff, and students are required to do so. Learn more and enroll in Two-Step Verification to protect your data as well as Penn's data.
