Protect Your UCD Account - Update

Thu, 21 July 16


Since the LinkedIn data breach was publicised, Google’s security service has notified the University of a possible threat to UCD staff and student email accounts, due to a further third party data breach affecting a number of websites.

If you have used your UCD password to authenticate to any other site then you must change your UCD password immediately, otherwise your UCD account and information is at significant risk.

You can change your UCD password by going to the UCD Connect webpage and clicking on the Password Icon on the top right hand corner of the page.

IT Services strongly advises all IT account holders to only use your UCD email address for University supported services, use a unique password for UCD systems, change your passwords frequently and never share your password with anyone including UCD IT Services.
