Actually, you cannot change your BlazerID once it has been set. However, you can use the Mail Only Alias option in place of your BlazerID.

To set your mail alias, go to the electronic phonebook: http://www.uab.edu/phonebook. Click on the Change Information button.

This will bring you to a login screen. Enter your BlazerID and password.

Once you login, you'll see a screen listing your information. Scroll to the bottom of the screen to the last item on the page: Mail-only aliases. Click the Add/Change link.

In the box that appears below, enter a new alias and hit Change! Aliases can be up to 16 letters or numbers in length, including upper and lower case. Note: Aliases are only used for mail delivery. You will still need to enter your BlazerID to access the systems across campus (i.e. - Oracle, BlazerNET, Banner, Blackboard, etc.).

Once you've entered your new mail alias, you'll need to select the display button out beside your new alias and hit Change! again. Then click the View Entry button at the top of the page to review your changes.

Your mail alias is now setup. Remember to continue to use your BlazerID, not your mail-only alias, to login into systems across campus.

Because your BlazerID password is used to open the door to many services and features on the UAB network, it is vital that it be strong enough to resist guessing by casual means. Someone breaking into your UAB records can be the first step toward identity theft which is being well-publicized now. To be sure you have a strong password, make sure it follows these rules:

  • Must be at least eight (8), no more than sixteen (16) characters in length
  • Must be a mix of letters, numbers, and optionally punctuation characters [except equal sign (=) comma (,) or quotation marks (') or (") or spaces/blanks]
  • Should not include any part of your own name, or the names of any family members, pets, or friends
  • Should not include your BlazerID, or any personal identification number, phone number, or your birth date
  • Should not be a single word, in any common language
The BlazerID registration and password screens try to ensure these rules are followed to the best extent possible. Note that strong passwords do not have to be difficult to remember; combining a couple of familiar words and either replacing one letter with a number, or separating the words with a number or acceptable punctuation, is a common way of creating a password that is both easy to recall by you and hard to guess by others.

All network and computer services around UAB currently accept or require a BlazerID for login.  The goal is to ultimately have your BlazerID serve as the sole identifier that allows you to securely access all of UAB's online information services and portals.
