How to Change Your Password

Set Up Multifactor Authentication (MFA) and Password Recovery

Multifactor Authentication helps secure your account from security attacks by adding another barrier of security to your account beyond your password. The options recommended to setup are Okta Verify, an app that uses your phone’s FaceID, fingerprint, or passcode to verify it is you that attempted to log in, Voice call, and SMS. 

Okta Multifactor Authentication Guide


Password Recovery

When setting up the Multifactor Authentication by Voice Call and SMS, Okta will automatically add them as a password recovery option. Please refer to the Multifactor Authentication guide on how to set these options up. In addition to using your phone to recover your password, you can also use a secondary email.


Add a Secondary Email

Secondary emails are useful in case you forget your Okta password. If you forget your password, then you can request a password help link be sent to your email address. But since you're accessing your Delta's email through Okta, then you won't be able to access the email that was sent. If you have provided Okta with a secondary email address, then Okta will also send the forgotten password email to your secondary email address — making it easy to access and reset your password!

To set a secondary email:

  1. Click on your name in the upper right corner of the navigation, and click on settings.Okta Settings
  2. From settings, click edit next to personal information
    Enter a secondary email address and click save
  3. Enter a secondary email in the open text field and click save.
