CareFree Passwords

This part of the knowledge base will explain how to change and reset passwords for CareFree users.

This page will also explain how to change your own password if required to do so.

For more information about adding and amending CareFree User Accounts please see the page for CareFree User Accounts

Resetting and Changing Passwords

By default, the password for a new user is set up as being the same as their user name. This can be altered using the passwords screen. To access this screen:

1. Go to the Tools menu at the top of the screen

2. Go to Maintain Users

3. Click Passwords

4. The passwords screen will then appear

5. Select the user whose password you wish to change

6. Type new password in the New Password field

7. Click Change to change the user’s password

8. By clicking Reset this will change the user’s password to the default setting (their username)

Password Security – Shared Options

A setting for all users can be set within the shared options of CareFree to ensure passwords are reset after a certain amount of days and a minimum amount of characters are used on every password.

1. Go to the Tools menu at the top of the screen

2. Go to Options and Settings

3. Click Shared Options

4. When the shared options screen appears, click Security listed down the left of the screen



Change Your Own Password

Users have the ability to change their own password if required to do so.

If CareFree does not ask for passwords to be changed on a regular basis our recommended is for users to change their own password every 30 days or when they feel it is necessary to do so. This ensures that staff are accessing CareFree under their own user account and not logging in as somebody else.

1. Go to Tools

2. Click Change password

3. Users must enter their Old Password to begin with

4. Users must then enter a New Password and confirm the new password

5. Click Change once completed
