The security and privacy of students are very important to Wharton Computing. Please take into consideration steps that will help protect yourself.
One of the easiest step to prevent your information from getting leaked is to have a strong and unique password. A password that has letters, numbers, and symbols is ideal. We recommend using different passwords for different websites/services.
To keep your passwords organized, all Penn students have access to LastPass. LastPass is a password management software that allows students to securely save and store your passwords in one place.
To learn more about LastPass, see LastPass
Wharton Computing offers free virus protection software for both Windows and Mac users to help keep your devices safe from viruses and spyware.

Two-step authentication provides an additional layer of protection when accessing Pennkey-related websites.
To learn more and enroll in two-factor authentication, see Two-Step Verification
Always be wary of links that people send to you. Clicking on these links may leak information about yourself and expose your computer to viruses.

Please be wary of the rules and policies associated with using the internet. The Office of Student Conduct is responsible and will act accordingly to suspicious behavior that a student does. Students should not file share or any activities similar to such on the AirPennNet network. Doing so may result in disciplinary sanctions and/or fines.
