How To Reset Jamb Password Via SMS & Email Easily

July 10, 2021 by Olamilekan

If you wish to know how to reset your jamb password via sms or email, this guide is for you.

Nobody on this planet, I believe, can physically state that I have never forgotten something since I was born.

If you ask me to recall everything I did yesterday, I have a tendency of missing the majority of it.

The reality is that everybody forgets things; however, the pace at which we forget things varies.

If you forget your jamb password (access key) don’t panic. There are a number of factors that could contribute to this, one of which is the use of different passwords on different websites.

Reasons Why You Can’t Login To Your Jamb Profile

However, if you remember your password but want to change it for security or some other purpose, you can use this method to do so.

How To Reset Your Jamb Password

There are currently only two ways to retrieve or restore your jamb password. If we learn of any new ways to recover your jamb password in the future, we will update this article.

You can join our email subscribers so as to get notified through your mail. Below are the two ways involved in jamb password retrieval.

  • Through jamb password reset link
  • Via SMS

Retrieval via eFacility Portal

In addition to what has already been mentioned, before you can use this method you must know your email account (the one used during your JAMB profile creation).

Scroll down to the sms method if you don’t remember yours.

If you have your email details with you login to it and search for “profile creation” you will see a mail sent to you from This mail consist of your registration information including your password.

Jamb profile creation details
  • In your web browser, go to the following page.
  • You’ll see an area where you can type in your email address.
  • Enter your email address and press Reset Password.
  • If your email address is right, you will receive an email with a password reset link.
  • You would then be able to enter a new password.

How To Reset JAMB Password Via SMS Or Without Email

This is another option to the previously listed method. However, you must have your mobile number with you in order to complete this successfully.

  • Send a text message in the following format.
  • Reset password to 55019
  • A new password will be sent to you.

If none of the steps above work for you, go to the nearest jamb office in your area. Make sure you go along with slips (the printout given to you during Jamb registration).

Finally, if the above steps didn’t work, make your password recovery process as fast as possible.
