BuckeyePass is a self-service tool. That means you can add, modify and remove devices at any time as needed. We recommend having at least two devices registered, in case your primary device is lost, damaged or stolen. This will become increasingly important as BuckeyePass is added to more systems, such as eTimesheet and eLeave on Sept. 30 and Carmen and Vita on Oct. 11.

We rarely think about the digital footprints we leave, or who would ever want to follow our tracks.
Sure, we knew that being fed advertising was part of the deal to use the platform for free. But how many of us actually read the privacy statement when we started using the service? And how many of us noticed the changes they’ve made over time?
