Security Improvements Coming to UTech Self-Service Tools and Forms

In order to improve the security of the UTech account and password self-service tools, and to prevent them from being abused by automated, Internet-based attacks, UTech is adding reCAPTCHA to the following self-service web pages to prevent bots from using the form:

CWRU Off-Campus Email Address page
CWRU Passphrase Verification page
CWRU technology account: passphrase change tool
CWRU technology account: passphrase reset tool

Also, the Affiliate Account Request Form now requires login via VPN if connecting from the Internet outside of the CWRU network, and DUO multi-factor authentication is being added to verify the identity of a requestor before permitting their request.

These improvements will be implemented January 19, 2022.
