Tech Tips

WORKING REMOTELY

Weather doesn’t always cooperate during the winter months. Access your email from off campus using Outlook on the Web. For additional help, see the Outlook on the Web Self-Help learning document.

ONLINE SHOPPING

Shopping online is fast and convenient – but when making online purchases from home, make sure you are protecting your personal information:

  • Never give out your password – Never give out your password whether orally or through email.
  • Password lock your smartphone – Locking your phone with a PIN or pattern can stop someone from stealing your identity.
  • Change you passwords regularly – Change your bank and personal passwords as often as you change your work passwords.
  • Register your phone for remote wiping – Register for “Find my iPhone” or the “Android Device Manager” in case your phone is lost or stolen.
  • Question links sent in emails – If a link in an email looks suspicious, type the link in the address bar of your browser; think before you click.
  • Regularly patch software – Make sure your personal computer is set up to automatically download and install updates.
  • Use Antivirus – Every device is a target, so every internet-accessible device you use should have antivirus software installed.
  • Watch out for WiFi – Avoid accessing personal information when using open or guest wireless networks; they often have little to no security.
  • Limit your sharing – Remember that everything you post on social media is accessible – hackers use social media to guess your passwords.
  • Download from trusted resources – Only download applications from trusted resources like the app stores or the company’s web site.
  • Protect your home – Configure your home router to use OpenDNS’ free malware-blocking DNS service and protect all of your devices.
  • Too many passwords? – Use a password manager to keep track of all of your different passwords.
