What is the Primary and the Secondary Password for?

The primary and the secondary MU password is used to authenticate (log on) systems that require identity verification. Each user (student and employee) has UČO and primary password automatically. Externalists obtain their approaches through a guarantor who can set up a Sponsored Account.

What is a Password for?

The primary MU password is for signing in IS MU for students and teachers 
https://is.muni.cz/auth/?lang=en;setlang=en (IS does not use the MUNI Unified Login, but it uses a custom login page)

The primary MU password is for signing in to systems that use MUNI Unified Login:

The secondary MU password is used for other services that use IS MU authentication, such as:

  • on PC in libraries, classrooms and study rooms (e.g. University Computer Centre)
  • to the Eduroam wireless network
  • to IS MU e-mail by IMAP or POP3 protocol
Password Changing

The primary and the secondary password can be changed in IS MU.

Forgotten Password

Primary password can only be issued in person, by the post office or renew through the identityobcana.cz portal.

The secondary password can be found in IS MU. Use UČO and primary password to log in.

Other Recommendations

Always treat your primary password with extreme caution, especially not to share it with another person and do not send it in an unsecured way (for example, by e-mail).

Choose a password other than primary. The secondary password can be sent by some systems over the network in unencrypted form, and therefore it is considered less secure.

IS administrators and other university staff never require sharing password via e-mail communication. If you receive a request to send a password via e-mail or to enter a page other than IS or MUNI Unified Login, it is very likely that someone is attempting to lure your password.

Do not save your password to your browser (option "Remember password" after entering your login information). If you enable this option, anyone who comes to your computer during your absence will be able to use your password and log into your Information System.
