I am not able to login to my ShareFile account. In fact, none of our users can login to their ShareFile accounts. We all get "Incorrect password" error. We haven't changed our passwords.

Since the password is not working on the ShareFile website, we are not able to use the ShareFile Outlook plugin to send emails (icon is greyed out) or sync files using the desktop app.

If you have forgotten your ShareFile account password, you can reset it from your ShareFile account login screen. There, you will see a Forgot password? link. Clicking that will prompt you to enter the email that you use to log in to your ShareFile account. Enter your email address and click the Send button.




The ShareFile system will send you an email that contains a link that you can use to set a new password. Clicking the link will prompt you to enter a new password. Enter your new password and click the Reset Password button. Once confirmed, you can click Go to Login to log in to your ShareFile account using your new password.

If your ShareFile account administrator has limited your ability to change your password, you will need to contact them in order to retrieve or reset your password.

Update: Are you or all the ShareFile / Citrix Files users in your organization unable to login to ShareFile and getting "incorrect password" error? It is possible that your password was reset.

Citrix identified some unusual logins to certain Citrix ShareFile (aka. Citrix ContentCollaboration) user accounts. We are requiring a password reset for all non-SSO accounts. Upon logging into ShareFile, users will no longer be able to use their old password. They will have received an email providing a link to reset their password. For more details on the recent password policy change, refer to https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/12/04/citrix-forces-password-reset-to-protect-against-credential-stuffing/

Refer to our Knowledge Base article: Unable to Login, How Do I Reset ShareFile Password? for detailed instructions on how to recover your password.

 If you are an admin, you reset your password,
login and change passwords for other users. Refer to CTX239862 - ShareFile
Admins - How to Reset User Passwords.
