KEARNEY – Information technology services is simplifying the password policy for UNK students and employees.
Beginning Sunday (March 24), ITS is eliminating password expiration dates and synchronizing TrueYou and campus accounts so users have only a single password to remember.
The change doesn’t immediately impact existing account passwords. Your TrueYou (Firefly, SAP, MyBlue and MyRecords) and campus (UNK email, Canvas and Box) passwords will sync the next time you register a password at trueyou.nebraska.edu.
UNMC accounts will remain separate from TrueYou credentials.
Users with access to sensitive information through SAP, Firefly and PeopleSoft have been enrolled in Duo to enhance security for those systems.
ITS is also working on a universitywide active directory – “OneAD” – that will allow flexible usernames (NUID, username or email) for all logins across UNK, UNL and UNO.
