If you ever believe any of your accounts and/or device(s) have been compromised, change your passwords for all accounts immediately. To change your Olivet password go to or for more information.

General security guidelines:

  • If someone asks you for information, question why they are asking and if you really know who is asking.
  • Never provide secure information to inquiries that come to you. Always go to an organization's official site or address.
  • Never give passwords to anyone. No organization should ever ask you for your password.
  • Use strong passwords.
  • Use a separate password for each account (both personal and work) you use.
  • If you suspect you may have been compromised, change your passwords by going to the source organizations.

Thank you for your diligence.
