Activate Howest account

How do I (re)activate my Howest account?

For security reasons, Howest never communicates passwords via email. That is why we ask you to set your password yourself using the ‘wachtwoord reset methode’ or 'password reset method'.

This application allows you to set a password. The system will send a verification code to your private e-mailadres (so, your Gmail email address, your Telenet email address, ...). Sometimes, the message with the verification method ends up in your spam folder. So please check there as well.
