HMS IT has launched a new interface for you to manage your HMS account and password. This service is available to HMS staff, faculty, and guests. HMS students are not eligible for this service; their accounts are provided by HarvardKey.
This interface improves the security and usability of account management processes, including account activation, password reset, and account unlocking. Benefits include:
- Integration with two-factor verification (2FA)
- Improved password guidelines
- Central location for account management
- Accessible from mobile devices
How to access
You can manage your HMS account at this URL: myaccount.hms.harvard.edu. You will be redirected from this URL to the account management page.
To claim your HMS account, your manager or sponsor will provide you with your HMS ID and an activation code. Your HMS ID is typically your initials followed by up to four numbers (like "abc123").
You will need a computer and a mobile device for two-factor authentication.
