The Department of Technology will never request your login information through email or ask you to validate your account. Always verify or type the URL of the site yourself to ensure you are not being redirected to a counterfeit site.

If you clicked a link in a suspicious email and believe you may have fallen victim to one of these scams, please enroll in our password reset tool (button is also at the top right of the home page).
SPOTTING A PHISHING EMAIL
Here are a few look-for's to avoid falling for a phishing attempt:

- Unexpected emails
The basic rule of thumb is that if something looks "off" or you weren't expecting an email from someone, contact them via another method to verify its authenticity.
