Washburn will NEVER ask for your password in e-mail

Just a quick security reminder as we all start a new semester:

  •     Washburn staff will NEVER ask for your password in an e-mail.
  •     No other organization you do business with should ever ask you for your password via e-mail either.
  •     Never send anyone your password via e-mail.

While our security filters successfully block most e-mails of this type, some will inevitably get through.  Malicious e-mails may look very official and may threaten significant consequences, these are just attempts to scare you into revealing privileged information.  When you receive messages like this, you can forward them to reportspam@washburn.edu.  This will put them in our system for automatic review and action.

If you ever have a question about the legitimacy of an e-mail, you can call User Services at 670-3000 or e-mail support@washburn.edu.  We’ll be happy to help.
