Question:

How are you going to use my phone number or personal email?

Answer:

Just for identification purposes. This system is not integrated with anything else. Your information is safe.

Question:

I donít trust it with my personal phone or email. Can I use my NCH issued email?

Answer:

Not a good idea. If youíre locked out of your account, how are you going to check your NCH email?

Question:

I really donít want to fill out the questions. Can I just put in bogus answers?

Answer:

No! This is how we attempt to identify that you are who you say you are. Fill in the answers with information that is correct and that you can remember.

Question:

What is the worst-case scenario if I donít enroll?

Answer:

If you ever need assistance with your account, your identity will need to be manually verified. This process involves checking with your manager or HR, reviewing your badge / ID, or other methods may be used to verify your identity.

This is a lengthy process. Password Station is easier and takes very little time.

Question:

Can I still sign up even though my phone carrier is not listed?

Answer:

We support the 4 major phone carriers. If your carrier is still not listed, you can leave it blank and press the continue button. This will allow you to sign up using your personal email address.
