How do I reset my myRIW password?

You may need to reset your myRIW password if you recently had your myRIW account unlocked by the RIW Service Desk or if you have forgotten your password.

After a number of attempts of entering your password incorrectly, your myRIW profile will be locked. If you receive this message, please raise a service request to have your myRIW profile unlocked. 

This instruction applies to the following user roles:

Go to


The Forgotten Password link can be found below the login button or by clicking on the following link: 


On the Password Reset screen, enter your User Name and Email Address and click Reset Password.


The system will email you a link to reset your password. This must be done within 72 hours of the email being sent as the link will expire. If this occurs, just use the Forgotten Password function again to resend another request.

On the Change Password screen, enter and confirm your password as per the instructions.  Click on the Reset Password button.


The following message will appear when the password has been changed.

You will need to verify your identity by choosing an authentication option available to your profile. In the example below, both SMS and email authentication methods are available. If you do not have a mobile number associated with your RIW profile, only the email authentication option will display.

TIP! If sending the authentication code to your email, try looking in your junk mail, or check out these tips for more information.


Enter the code delivered to your device and click Login.

You will now have access to myRIW.
