Watch for tech updates in the Monitor every other week
Tech at IU is constantly evolving to help students do their best work. University Information Technology Services (UITS) runs the tech at IU. Every other week, you’ll receive this newsletter, called the Monitor, to keep you informed about the top-notch tech IU offers every student.
Here are important tech updates to make sure you have a great start to the semester:
IU has added an extra layer of security for logging into Exchange Online. If you receive a message saying, “Your email access has been blocked,” you may need to complete a profile reset. You can still access your email through other means such as through mail.iu.edu on a laptop, tablet, or desktop.
Duo is no longer able to call or text a number to access two-step authentication. Instead, you must authenticate logins via push notifications on the Duo mobile app or through a reusable specialty hardware token. These tokens are distributed for free by the Support Center.
New students are especially susceptible to phishing emails, but everyone at IU is vulnerable. These emails can come from a variety of sources, even other IU accounts that have been phished, and can try to steal a range of personal information.
