As you may have noticed, Empire State College has a new log-in page. This is a secure web based login page which includes “single sign-on” technology. This new login system is a major step forward in reducing the number of times a person must enter their username and password to access multiple password protected websites and applications. Ultimately, this change will make online life at the college a little easier for everyone.
Now that we are using this interface, there is one reminder about the new web college login we would like to emphasize –
Always close all web browser tabs/windows when you are finished!
Now that web single sign-on is live, it is VERY important to remember the sentence above! While web single sign-on will make things simpler, there is NO web single sign-out! To log out of the college system, close ALL web browser tabs/windows used for accessing college websites which require your college username and password.
