Wentworth Network/LConnect Account: Your Username

This is your primary username for all network and web systems at Wentworth. The LConnect username is made up of your last name, your first initial, and sometimes numerals: smithb or possibly smithb2. When you sign onto your laptop or any network computer, you use your LConnect/Network username. Your Wentworth Network Account is required to access the following resources:

  • LeopardSecure Wireless Network
  • Printing
  • E-mail 
  • MyWeb Student Web Server
  • LConnect & LeopardWeb

TIPS TO KEEP YOUR PASSWORD SECURE:

  • Never tell anyone else your password.  Otherwise, why would we call it yours?
  • Choose a password that's easy for you to remember, but hard for someone else to guess.  Pets names, birth dates, and the street you grew up on are easy to find on social networking sites so they should be avoided.
  • Never write down your password.  You wouldn't write your PIN on your ATM card would you?
  • If you are concerned that someone knows your password or has accessed your account, change your password immediately, then contact the Technology Services Help Desk.

PASSWORD AGE

For security reasons, Wentworth users are prompted to change their Active Directory password every 180 days. You may change it more often if you like. When passwords are about to expire, you will receive a daily email reminder from the Help Desk beginning 7 days prior.
