Automated Password Reset Tool

Password and Recovery Reset Tool

To maintain the highest level of security, Argonaut usernames and passwords are both case sensitive, but sometimes we accidentally type an incorrect character or realize our Caps Lock is on and inadvertently get locked out of our account after several attempts. There are also those times when we simply forget our password.  We have released a new tool that will help you to reset your account.  The new tool will use information in your account to confirm your identity as the therapist on record with Argonaut before you can reset your password.  If you find yourself locked out or unable to remember your username or password, we hope you will find this new tool to be useful!
