On Sunday, September 27, 2020, Information Technology Services (ITS) is launching a new Patriot Pass Password Management website (password.gmu.edu). In tandem, the redesign of the Password Management site will also launch the requirement for current Mason students to enroll in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).

Changes to the Password Management Website
The new Password Management site will have an improved look and feel, including a more modern and user-friendly design, a redesigned navigation to enhance the overall user experience, and responsive design making it optimal on all devices.

Two-Factor Authentication for Students
Effective September 27, when a student’s Patriot Pass Password expires (separate from MasonLive Microsoft Passwords), and they go to password.gmu.edu to reset their password, they will also go through the 2FA enrollment process.

Mason uses Duo Security to deliver 2FA, which is a second layer of protection for Mason websites and applications containing student information. Students do not need to wait for their passwords to expire to get 2FA and are encouraged to enroll early. Blackboard/myMason and MasonLive student email are currently not 2FA enabled.

To learn more or to enroll early, see 2fa.gmu.edu or visit the ITS knowledge base for additional information:
2FA Information and How-tos: https://its.gmu.edu/article-categories/2fa-information/
2FA Frequently Asked Questions: https://its.gmu.edu/article-categories/2fa-faqs/
If you need additional details or assistance, please contact the ITS Support Center at 703-993-8870 or via email at [email protected].
