SmartPhones and Tigermail

Your Tiger ID account may be received on certain smartphones in accordance with the instructions linked below. We provide guidance for Motorola-manufactured android phones; and the Apple iPhone.

Note: the instructions depend on the manufacturer of the phone rather than the carrier, such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile.

The instructions also presume that you will have a cellular connection. You cannot get your Tiger ID if you have only a wireless connection. Therefore if your phone is set to locate a wireless connection, change the setting to off. Please note that if you are asked to log-in to the QCC network by entering your email ID, your phone is set to locate a wireless connection and this function should be turned to off.

Tiger ID Password

You can create a new password if you forgot your old password. Click on the "Create Personal Tiger ID Password" link on the TigerID log-in page.

If you receive the following message, "Contact Tiger ID helpdesk (718) 631-6348, if you continue to experience problems changing your password", you have tried to use a password already stored in the system. The Tiger ID system saves your last 6 passwords so you will have to try a new password in this case.


If you have difficulty logging on call 718-631-6348 Monday thru Friday between 9am and 5pm.
