Username and Password
When you log in you have to use your KTH account, that is the same username and password as you use for the Personal Menu.
General Information about username and password
To log in on a computer you need a username and a password.
The password is personal and must be kept secret, it is only known by you.
In our computer systems we use the same username and password as the KTH account, that means that you are supposed to use the same login credentials as when you log in to the Personal Menu and Canvas.
If you change your password in one place, it will automatically change in all systems that are connected to the KTH account.
