    In today’s world, a password alone is not enough.

    Two-Step verification for Brown accounts is now available for all students, staff, and Brown-paid faculty. This feature, which uses a product called Duo, will protect your Brown account even if someone is able to access or guess your password. It combines something you know (your password) with something you have (a phone or code).

    In preparation for Windows 10’s July 29th release, CIS evaluated its compatibility with Brown services and software. 

     

    Our Recommendation

    We recommend that you do NOT immediately upgrade to Windows 10; new operating systems usually have issues that are resolved in subsequent releases.

    We also found some issues with Brown services noted in the list below.

  • Wed. 7/8 @ 10am

    Brown students, staff, and Brown-paid faculty now have unlimited access to Lynda.com courses.
