Fordham University requires all members to verify their identity with multi-factor authentication (MFA) when logging into a password protected account at Fordham. MFA provides an additional layer of security and reduces the risks associated with unauthorized access to your accounts, should your passwords ever be compromised. Please refer to the Multi-Factor Authentication page for more information.

Password changes are confirmed via email. Should you receive a confirmation email but did not change your password, that email may be phishing or spam. If this is the case, mark the email as Spam in your Gmail account and go to the portal at My.Fordham.edu to change your password. Then contact IT Customer Care immediately to let them know about the suspicious email.
