NEVER... Give out your password... NEVER!!!

NEVER!!!

Under no circustances should anyone ask you for a password nor should you provide your password.  This holds true for any in person, email or over the telephone communications.  Providing your password is a sure fire way to lead to infecting your computer or mobile device, personal and confidential data loss, and identity theft.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact IT Customer Care at (718) 817-3999 or via email to: HelpIT@fordham.edu
