Tutorial - PirateID Self Service Password Reset

IT Service Desk 252-328-9866 | Pirate Techs Technology Support Centers


ECU has updated our password management to a new self-service called PirateID Self Service. The pirateid.ecu.edu link remains the same but the interface is new, and you will be prompted to enroll first if you have not already done so. See the tutorial link in the Related Articles section.

Note: If you are faculty/staff using an ECU-managed Mac, continue to manage your password through the computer "locally." See the Related Articles section on this page for instructions.

Password Reset

Current ECU users follow these steps to reset their password. Current users who did not enroll before March 4, 2024, will be prompted to set up PirateID Self Service account authentication. New users should begin by following the process under the Forgot your password or Activate new account? tab.
