myNEU offers a password recovery feature in case you forget your password. The recovery question and answer is just as important as your password.
To change your challenge question log into myNEU: Click on My Profile>Authentication Questions.
Choose a password reset challenge question and answer where the answer is nonsensical, and where only you will understand the relationship between the question and answer. The password reset challenge answer is case sensitive, so use case to help deter guessing.
