Accounts and Passwords

When you gain FI MU student status, you receive three passwords and two logins.

Učo

Učo (is an acronym for the “unique personal number” in Czech) and it allows access to all facilities available to all MU students. With it, you use either your primary or secondary password.
Učo may not be changed. It is assigned once, when you become an MU student. (If you leave MU and then resume your studies, you will still have your original učo.)

Primary Password

Students use Učo and their primary password to log in to the MU Information System.
It also allows students to log in to the system operated by the university accommodation and catering facilities ISKAM. (University employees may use it to log in to Inet).
You recieved your primary password when you enrolled. After you use it once to log in to IS, you will be able to change it.

Secondary Password

Using učo and your secondary password you can log in to all other services across MU that require user authentication. For instance:

  • Contact and Monitoring Centre (university computer room) – PC login
  • Eduroam – Wi-Fi network
  • MU email via the IMAP or POP3 protocols

Your secondary password may be changed or viewed in IS.

Further information on učo passwords is also provided on the website of the Institute of Computer Science.

Faculty Login and Faculty Password

Faculty login and faculty password are used to log in to services provided exclusively by FI. For instance:

  • User PCs in all FI classrooms
  • PCs in the FI PC Room and classrooms
  • wlan_fi – FI Wi-Fi network
  • Acess to FI mail

Before your first seminar, definitely try to log in on a machine once, or at least bring your login information with you to be able to use a PC to work.

You will receive your faculty login by mail. It begins with the letter x (then it usually includes a portion of your name and terminates with a number).
Initially, the faculty password is set to be identical to your secondary password but is otherwise entirely independent of it. You can change it in the Faculty Administration (FAdminu) or in IS.

Check Your Password

Since these passwords allow you access to many places, they should be reasonably strong. You can check their strength using an IS tool, there you will find further tips how to create a strong password.
