CYBER FAQs




I'm new to CYBER. How do I get a username and password?

Contact your Security Administrator(s) at your site. He/she can create an ID and default password for you. If your agency does not have a Security Administrator, please contact the Service Desk at 1-877-736-9176.



How can I get into CYBER if I get locked out or can't remember my password?

If you know your Login Name and email for your CYBER access, you should be able to reset your own password. Information about Password Reset for All Providers is available in the Provider Training section.

You may also contact your Security Administrator(s) to have your password reset. If you cannot reach your Security Administrator, you may call the Service Desk at 1-877-736-9176.



When I log onto CYBER I get a pop up message that says within 10 days I will have to change my password. How do I change my password?

If you are not a Security Administrator, after logging into CYBER, click the System Functions button and then the Manage Access button. This brings up a window where you may remove the dots in the password field and create a new password. The password must be at least eight characters and include lower case and capital letters, a number or other non-alphanumeric character (ex: & ! -*). CYBER will remember your last four passwords. Log out and then log back in with your new password.

If you are a Security Administrator, click the System Functions button and then the Manage Access button. Next, search for your name or User ID. When you locate your name, double click on it to open the screen. You may change your password by entering directly into the password field, a new password using the same requirements as noted above. Scroll to the bottom, and click the Save and Exit button. Log out and then log back in with your new password.
