Protect your data with Google 2-step verification

Have you noticed how often security breaches, stolen data, and identity theft are front-page news these days? Perhaps you or someone you know has been targeted by cyber criminals who stole personal information, banking credentials, and more. As these incidents become more prevalent, it is essential that you strengthen your cybersecurity practices with 2-step verification (also called multi-factor authentication or two-factor authentication).

Google 2-step verification adds an essential layer of security to ensure the safety of your Mount Holyoke account. Turning on 2-step verification will be mandatory for all students by March 25th, but LITS encourages the entire MHC community to take this preventative step towards protecting your data as soon as possible.
