Public Access Login - WAMS ID Required
Remember me next time.
How do I create a WAMS ID?
Anyone can create a WAMS ID by completing this
Self Registration form [exit DNR]
. Please only fill out the required fields indicated by the red asterisk. You do not need to complete the home address section. We suggest you make your WAMS ID, password and secret question/answer something you can easily remember.
You may get some error messages after clicking the submit button. Here are some common errors and ways to correct them:
If the error is mailing address related, please remove your address from the registration form and only fill in the required fields.
If the user ID is already used by someone else, then you will need to choose a different one.
If the email address is already used, then you may already have a WAMS ID or someone else previously used that email address. If you are positive no one should have used that email address before, please contact us. Otherwise, you will need to use a different email address.
After submitting the self registration, you should receive an email from WAMS@Wisconsin.gov with a web link to activate your WAMS ID.
How do I activate my WAMS ID?
To make your newly created WAMS ID active, you must click on the emailed web link from WAMS@Wisconsin.gov. If you do not receive the email, it may have gone into your junk or spam email folder. Please check there prior to contacting us.
After you click on the email link, you will be asked to login in with your new WAMS ID and password. Once your WAMS ID is active, click on the "Previous Application" link to request access to DNR on-line systems.
If you receive an error message when try to activate your WAMS ID, please close the web browser, wait a few minutes and click on the emailed link again. Sometimes the system may not be ready yet if you receive and click on your email link too quickly. However, if the login errors continue, you may need to talk to your computer support person and enable cookies on your web browser.
You must activate your WAMS ID within 4 days. After that, your account information will be removed and you will need to complete the WAMS self registration form again.
How do I change my WAMS password, email address or secret question/answer?
You may change your WAMS account password or email address using "Profile Mangement" at the
Wisconsin User ID [exit DNR]
web site. Please keep your email address and secret question/answer updated because they are needed to reset your password.
I forgot my WAMS ID or password
After several incorrect password attempts, your WAMS account will become locked. If you can't remember your WAMS ID or password, there are two options to help you get back on-line:
Please try this
Account Recovery [exit DNR]
link first. You may enter either your WAMS ID or email address. You do not need to enter both. It will email you a link and then you will need to answer your secret question correctly.
If you tried Account Recovery, but either don't receive the emailed link or can't remember the answer to your secret question then the WAMS Support Center can help you. Please use this
Support Center form [exit DNR]
to enter your contact information (the required items are marked with a star), then click the submit button on the bottom of the screen. Note that we have pre-filled some of the information to help route the message correctly. All you need to enter is your contact information.
