To help manage your passwords (both Stanford and personal), you are eligible to use the password manager that is provided free-of-charge to all Stanford community members.
All SUNet accounts are protected by two-step authentication, which periodically prompts you for a dynamic code when logging in. You have several options for this second code: the Duo mobile app, a text message, a phone call, or a special purpose hand-held token.
To simplify Stanford logins by eliminating the need to enter your username and password, you can use the new Cardinal Key option. Cardinal Key logs you in automatically and helps protect your SUNet account from compromise.
Computers used for logging into Stanford systems must adhere to the university’s security standards (including encryption and up-to-date software). You can view the status of your devices via the MyDevices website, which will indicate whether there’s something you need to do. If needed, the encrypt.stanford.edu website steps you through configuring your device to meet Stanford’s requirements.
If your device is lost or stolen, please report it promptly via the University Privacy Office website → “Report an Incident”.
