Graduates, don’t lose your stuff! Graduation is an exciting time for every Tiger, but it unfortunately does mean a change to some of the software and services you’ve grown accustomed to during your time at Clemson. Luckily, with a few minutes of review, you can prepare your technology and data for graduation.

Cybersecurity Alert: Apple device users may see an increase in fraudulent authentication attempts. Similar to how Clemson uses DUO to verify a person’s identity, before someone’s Apple ID can be reset, a user’s phone receives a prompt asking for verification for the reset. In this new scam, Apple device users may experience a bombardment of up to 100 prompt notifications asking them to approve or deny a password reset on their Apple ID. These requests are fraudulent and if approved, cybercriminals can change the Apple account password and lock users out.
