Never give anyone your passwords, whether via email, phone, or in person. Even OSU support staff will not ask you for your password. Each year, roughly 40 OSU user accounts are hacked because a person gave someone else their password.

Never show login information to anyone and keep any passwords you write down in a safe place. Do not slap a sticky note onto your computer monitor with your password, as that is manifestly unsafe.

Use a secure wireless connection, even if you're just connecting to Facebook. Later in this guide, we'll show you how to connect to OSU_Secure when on campus.

It is your responsibility to read and understand OSU IT policies, including those related to security and the acceptable use of the university's computing resources.
