How Do I Unsave My Self-Service Password?

If you previously selected "Save this password in your password list" on the log in screen, or if your password is popping up everytime you go to log in, your password has been saved into your browser. This will allow anyone to access your personal Self-Service account from your computer. To make your account secure, you need to undo your password save.  To clear your password from your browser, follow the directions below.
When you log in, make sure there is no check mark in the box next to the "Save this password in your password list" as shown below.

Under the History section, click the Clear History button.  Click Yes when prompted "Are you sure you want Windows to delete your history of visited Web sites?"

Click OK to exit the Internet Options screen.  Finally, click the refresh button on your Internet Explorer toolbar or hit F5 on your keyboard. The next time you log in, you should be prompted to enter both your MI HR Self-Service User Name and Password.

Your Self-Service password protects the confidentiality of your information and the integrity of the state system. You are responsible for protecting your password from unauthorized use. Don't share it with anyone. Don't keep a copy of it by your computer. We recommend changing your password at least every six months. If you have any concern someone may have seen your password, change it immediately.
