Choose Strong Passwords or Passphrases
Use Two-Factor Authentication
Enrolling in a multi-factor authentication program is another great way to safeguard your data and devices. Multi-factor authentication can help stop cyber criminals from accessing your account information in the event your username and password are compromised. This system requires users to authenticate their login attempt via a six digit code sent via text message, phone call or authenticator app.
To help safe-guard University users’ information and sensitive student and financial data, Chapman is now requiring all students, faculty and staff to enroll their Chapman accounts in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) by January 15, 2021. Although the required enrollment date for 2FA is not until next year, we will be actively encouraging all users to enroll as soon as possible. The self-enrollment process is easy and only takes a few minutes to complete. Once enrolled, you will not have to worry about your Chapman account being compromised. However, you should continue exercising extreme caution when working online.
You can also go straight to the self-enrollment page. Please be aware that once enrolled, you will be signed out of your Chapman account on all desktop and mobile devices. We recommend that if you are using a mobile device for checking Chapman University email, that you download and use the Outlook 365 mail app for the best reliability and security.
