Help Desk - Updating Your Wi-Fi Password on Your Android Device

This article provides instructions on updating your Wi-Fi password on your Android device after changing your password. NOTE: You must be on campus and within range of the eduroam Wi-Fi network to make this change. These instructions show the Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) OS release on a Samsung Galaxy S7 device. You may need to consult your device’s instruction manual to find similar instructions for your device. You must also update all of your saved UWP passwords for wifi, and outlook/mail on all devices if you just changed your UWP password or the system will continuously lock you out.

1. Tap the settings icon.
