Online security profile

The University strives to provide the most secure computing environment possible and to protect the confidentiality of sensitive information. As part of this effort, a new bank-like login procedure has been implemented to protect your personal information and Princeton's confidential data.

The new system, known as PUaccess, is now available. Users who log in to HR Self Service applications, PeopleSoft human resources and student records applications, or SCORE are able to create an enhanced security profile consisting of a new password, a personal image/phrase, and three security questions and answers. After creating your profile, whenever you log in to these systems, you will see your personal image and phrase, to assure that you have reached a valid Princeton site. The security questions will be used when you access protected systems from different locations and will allow you to reset a forgotten password without calling the OIT Help Desk.
