Q:How can I protect my UTPA account?
There are many ways to easily protect your account:
  • Don't share your password with others. Protect it.
  • Remember: UTPA will never ask for your password.
  • Choose a strong password and change it often.
  • Create a unique password by using a combination of letters and numbers that aren't easily guessed. For example, if you have a playful beagle, your password might be p14yfulB3aG13.
  • Avoid using the same password for other accounts.
  • Keep your computer protected using security software (Microsoft Forefront and Avast! are free), which creates a security firewall for your activity and scans for intrusions of malware.

NOTE: Use caution when someone asks for sensitive information through email. Especially if you get an email requesting personal information and/or you're unsure whether UTPA actually sent it. Don't click any links or enter information. Instead, forward the email to so that we can have the suspicious email examined by our security team.
