With the ever increasing use of cloud technology in our daily lives, individual accounts are being targeted. It is important that we all take greater precautions in protecting our personal information and the information and files entrusted to us in our professional lives.
Google provides an extra layer of protection, known as 2-Step Verification, to help minimize your Google account from being compromised by requiring a password and a prompt that you must authorize on your personal mobile device or a unique code that is sent to you.
You have multiple options including:
- Smart Phone Prompt
- a smartphone app
- text message
- phone call
- printed list
ITS is available to help and answer any questions you may have about how it works, what the value is, or how to set it up for your account. Please contact the Help Desk at 814-332-2755, or submit a ticket at webhelp.allegheny.edu
