Question : Why does my LSUHSC ID account keep getting locked out?

Answer : The most common cause for a user's account to be locked out is when a user changes their password and they are still logged onto another system (including mobile devices and tablets) under their old password. Even though you log onto a system in the morning and you are prompted to change your password, your account will automatically be locked out after several minutes if you are still logged on another system with your old password. If you find that you are having trouble accessing drive mappings, e‐mail, or internet content and you know that you just changed your password, please contact Allied Health IT support to have your account checked. If it is locked again, you should track down all the systems that you normally use and make sure that you are logged out.
