How to Reset/Retrieve Your JAMB Password

Last updated on August 25th, 2020 by Chris. Akuneme

Having access to your JAMB profile is very important. Especially for the fact that if you are eventually offered admission, you must log in to your JAMB profile to accept or decline the admission.

Two things you need to login to your JAMB profile are your email address and password. Please note that the password used here is not compulsorily the same one you use in logging into your email account.

In this article, you will learn how to change your JAMB profile password.

There are three ways to recover your JAMB password, you can either retrieve it from your email, reset it from JAMB website or chat with your JAMB support.

How to Retrieve your JAMB Password from your Email

When you created your JAMB profile either at a CBT centre or by yourself, a message was sent to your email address containing your profile creation details.

This message contains your name, date of birth and password.

To retrieve your password using this method, log in to your email address and search for “Profile Creation Details”.

Your search result should look like the image below especially if you use Gmail;

Open the email and scroll down to see your password.

      Are you using a Gmail or Yahoo mail? You can keep trying, if the problem persist, visit a CBT centre.

      For now, you cannot get your password through SMS. You can use a friends phone, cybercafe or CBT centre.
