Two Step Login

Everyone at Notre Dame uses two step login with their NetID to help protect their accounts, and the rest of Notre Dame.  You will need a device to do that "second step."  You can use any of the following types of devices:

  • Mobile phone
  • Desk phone
  • Home phone
  • Tablet
  • Keyfob (must be purchased from the OIT)

The OIT strongly encourages you to configure at least 2 devices to be your second step so that if one of those devices becomes unavailable, you have the other to allow you to login.  If you lose, break, or forgot your device, and you can't login, please call the OIT at 574-631-8111.

Account Policies & Standards

Keep your password secret from family, friends, and even the OIT Help Desk. Remember, anyone with your NetID and password can read your email, view and change personal information and settings, and access any sensitive data on your computer. Keep personal and University information safe by not sharing your password with anyone. See the Responsible Use of Information Technology Resources policy for details. 

In addition to the Responsible Use Policy, everyone is also required to follow the NetID Access to IT Resources policy. NetIDs and email addresses may only be changed under certain circumstances.
