Reset Your FCC CORES Password

If you are Registered (have a FRN) but do not know your FCC CORES Password you can reset your password on line.

a.) If you have NOT established a Personal Security Question (PSQ) and Answer (most amateurs have not) go to the FCC’s  Forgot Your Password? page. Click on the link "Set Personal Security Question." In this screen, fill in all the required fields (including Social Security Number). At the bottom of the page, fill out your personal security question information. Click on the certify box (check mark will populate box) then click "submit." The FCC will provide you with a tracking number that consists of the letters HD and 13 digits. Make note of this number. You will receive an e-mail from the FCC when your FRN registration has been updated with your PSQ. Go back to the password web page and continue the process with an established PSQ and Answer (see item b.) and no FCC Cores password.

b.) If you have established a Personal Security Question (PSQ) and Answer, then you may use the online password reset feature to create a new password for your FRN. Go to the FCC’s Forgot Your Password? page and click on the "Reset Password" link. Enter your FRN and click on "continue." Type in your Personal Security Question Answer and click "continue." Enter your new Password, retype it and click "continue." You will receive a confirmation screen affirming that your FRN has been successfully updated.

Forgot your password? If you have previously provided FCC with a Personal Security Question and answer, then on the FCC web site you may use the online password reset feature to create a new password for your FRN.

If you have forgotten your password and have not previously provided a Personal Security Question and answer, on the FCC web site you can request a password reset.
