Beginning Monday, September 12, Enterprise Security will be implementing BuckeyePass to protect your personal information in the Employee Self Service (ESS) system within Human Resources. BuckeyePass is a multi-factor authentication service that provides a second layer of protection for university. You may already be using multi-factor authentication to log in to your bank account, email or social media accounts.
Because password resets are among the most common requests our IT Service Desk receives, our IDM team has been working hard to provide a new password reset alternative. Beginning Monday, Aug. 1, users will have the ability to reset their passwords independently by requesting a reset code to their mobile device via SMS text message (SMS is “Short Message Service”).
