    On March 9, OIT will enable a security feature in Catmail called Safe Links and will release a new version of the OHIO login page that requires users to enter their full @ohio.edu email address instead of just their OHIO ID to login. Normally, we would provide several weeks’ notice for a change like this. In this case, we have chosen to accelerate the timeline to provide additional protection against a recent uptick in phishing scam attacks. Spring break represents our best opportunity to implement these measures quickly while minimizing impact on the university community.

    Both changes are part of a broader campaign to enhance online communication security at Ohio University.

    To provide a better wi-fi experience for faculty, staff and students, OIT will retire the OHIO University network name in favor of eduroam at the end of spring semester. Eduroam is just as fast and secure as OHIO University with the added benefit of free wi-fi access at hundreds of universities worldwide

    If you have any computers, phones or tablets that connect to the OHIO University wi-fi, we recommend switching to eduroam before the end of the semester. You will receive periodic email reminders about this change as long as you still have devices that connect to "OHIO University."

    To support the University’s decision to brand itself exclusively as “OHIO," OIT will retire the ohiou.edu internet domain in favor of ohio.edu on Dec. 21, 2018. From December 21, 2018 through June 30, 2019, ohiou.edu web addresses will redirect to a page that informs visitors of the name change and recommends that they replace “ohiou.edu” with “ohio.edu” in the address they were trying to reach.
