Frequently Asked Questions

What should I know about general password information?
  • Your passwords are for your eyes only. Don't share your password information with anyone, including IT, staff and/or faculty.

  • You may think that your Olds College work does not need protected. Remember that a lot of the systems here include personal information. This information can be used by third parties who don't necessarily have your best interests at heart. Also, we have seen some people take advantage of others on campus by using someone else's account to send nasty emails, remove files and just generally cause havoc for the other person. It has happened in the past. Please protect yourself - often this isn't just "harmless" mischief.

  • If you think (or know) that someone may have access to your account(s) - change your password(s) immediately.
