Wrapping up

At this point you have reset your Sage password. You should now be able to authenticate with Sage services. Please take note of the caveats below.

Since the password that was generated for you is random and likely hard to remember we recommend that you change it to something that you will remember. You can do this by going to and then logging in with your Sage username and your newly generated password, after logging in you will be prompted to enter a new password that you can remember.

If you need further help with your account or password you can look for more help at the Service Center at or call the IT Service Desk at 518-244-4777.

After changing your password, ensure that you update your credentials on devices that use your password behind the scenes. If you fail to do this, your account could end up locked out after a number of failed authentication attempts. Some common places to update your password include: WiFi devices (phone/laptop) that connect to Sage's WiFi and email clients on mobile phones.
