Changing your Password

This has to be done only once

In order to use our Wi-Fi we request a secure password. Since the Wi-Fi login uses your library account, a one-time password change is required.

  • Your old password is either your initial password or (if already changed) the password for your library account.
  • Your initial password is your date of birth in the format ddmmyy.
  • Your new password is not only valid for Wi-Fi but for all account services.

The new password should contain at least six and at most 32 characters, including at least 1 alphabetical character, 1 numerical character, 1 special character.

Permitted characters:

  • alphabetical: Aa … Zz
  • numerical: 0 … 9
  • special characters , ; . : - _ # ' + * ! " $ % & / ( ) = ?

Please note: Your new password can be used immediately to log in into your library account.
Access to all other services may require a waiting period of 6 minutes. A hint is shown after changing the password.

If you cannot change your password here, e.g. in case you forgot your password, please use the reset function in the Password-Center or contact wlan@sbb.spk-berlin.de.
