Changing how we login - tomorrow, act now!

20 Nov 2017

Many thanks to everyone who has signed up for the new login service – you should be all set for the change this week

Not yet registered? Time is running out to get setup – just 1 day to go!

On Tuesday 21 November 2017, the way all Staff and Postgraduate Research Students login each day will change, to introduce an extra layer of IT security using 2-factor authentication (whether on or off campus).

You will need to use our new 2-factor authentication service, which is being provided by a company called Duo, to login to a new virtual private network (VPN) called GlobalProtect. All Staff and Postgraduate Research students will need to register with Duo before Tuesday 21 November 2017.

If you do not register and get set up ahead of the change, from Tuesday 21 November you will still be able to log in to your computer, but as you will not be using 2-factor authentication, your desktop email will not work (email through mobile and tablet devices will be unaffected).
