Pennkeys and Passwords for QuakerNet

I do not have a PennKey or password. How do I obtain one?


1. Get a Setup Code.


If you graduated prior to 1987, please contact record@ben.dev.upenn.edu, or 215-898-8136.

If you graduated in 1987 or later, visit the PennKey ASAP site. After you submit some basic information, a PennKey Setup Code will be issued to you via email within a few minutes. While you wait for your PennKey Setup Code email to arrive, please review these important guidelines for creating a password.
If you encounter problems when using the ASAP site, please contact record@ben.dev.upenn.edu, or 215-898-8136.


2. Get a PennKey.


After you receive your Setup Code, you will need to register your PennKey and create a password. Please have the following information ready:
o    Your Setup Code, exactly as you received it. Setup Codes expire after sixty days.
o    The last four digits of your Social Security #.
o    Your date of birth.
o    An idea for your password.

With the information listed above, visit the PennKey Web Site and enter the data as requested. Remember that PennKeys are case-sensitive.
Please make sure to enroll in Challenge-Response (PennKey Security Questions) so that you can reset your password in case you ever lose it.
