Authentication

WPI requires users to authenticate to the network to access many programs and data.

About

Many areas of the WPI network require a username and password to access. WPI IT provisions new accounts as requested through appropriate channels. Users should carefully guard their account information. Members of IT will never ask for your password.

Members of the WPI community must setup Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) in order to gain and maintain access to the Office 365 applications. This includes portal.wpi.edu, as it runs on SharePoint. SSPR enables users to reset their password with an alternate contact method.

For added security, WPI has implemented Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) to applications with sensitive data. MFA requires second form of authentication to gain access to specific applications.
