The State of Ohio notified employees this week that the enterprise employee portal, myOhio.gov, is being upgraded and will go-live on April 30 for all State of Ohio employees. The site will be accessible from desktops, smartphones, and tablets and will have enhanced security features and single sign-on capability. According to the Dept. Of Administrative Services, the new myOhio will have a modern feel and will offer intuitive navigation and fully searchable content. One especially beneficial feature will be a self-service password reset function that will be more convenient and faster for employees while enhancing system security.
As a part of this upgrade, mandatory security requirements for all users are being implemented. When logging in to the new myOhio for the first time, all users will be required to set up or confirm at least one of the following self-service password reset options: personal email, mobile phone number, or security questions. Only one option is required, but setting up all three is recommended for maximum self-service flexibility. (Existing answers to security questions will not carry over to the new myOhio. Employees with concerns about sharing their personal email or mobile phone number, may choose to answer the security questions as their one required security option.
