Resetting Sub-Email Account Password

Message 1 of 2

Verizon support cannot seem to figure out how to reset the passward on a subaccount.  The website only lets you reset the password on the main account!  This is crazy!!  Anyone have any ideas how to get it done?

If you know the current password, just log into the sub account and reset it the same way you would the primary account.


If you don't know it, go here:



That should allow you to reset the sub account by answering the Secret Question. Select password for what you forgot, put in the username of the sub account you want to reset, then answer the sub account's secret question correctly.


Keep in mind that NONE of the "forgot password" links on Verizon sites point to this page. There is no way to get to this particular flow other than going directly to https://www.verizon.net/ssowebapp/alternateAuth/altChoice.jsp
