October is here, and you know what that means – it’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month! 🌐🔒 UNCG Information Technology Services (ITS) joins the National Cybersecurity Alliance and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) to boost campus cyber awareness. ITS will share vital tips to help safeguard your identity, finances, and devices. Stay tuned for ways to protect yourself while working, learning, and living in the digital age.  

Empower your online security: Enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) everywhere!

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enhances security by requiring multiple forms of verification like a password and text message. Even if a hacker has your password, they cannot access your account without that second factor. UNCG uses MFA for added protection. You can use MFA for your personal accounts, too. 

Enable MFA for your bank, credit card accounts, and all financial services. Don’t forget to enable it on services like:  

  • Amazon 
  • Dropbox 
  • Facebook 
  • Google 
  • Instagram 
  • Mastodon 
  • Nest 
  • PayPal 
  • Ring 
  • Slack 
  • Snapchat 
  • TikTok 
  • Twitter 
  • WhatsApp
