How Important Is BlueKey to Access Campus Connect?
BlueKey can be defined as a new seamless and secure login experience for Depaul technology services. When you see the BlueKey login experience, it means that you should login using the firstname.lastname@example.org format which matches your Depaul BlueM@il email address.
The BlueKey is very important for Depaul login. Why? However, this system provides a bunch of advantages for the Depaul students, faculty and also staff. Here are the reasons why BlueKey is important:
- Provides additional security
The BlueKey will enhance security capabilities. This login experience can allow the Information Services to add more security measures such as multi-factor authentication. Depaul staff can now use BlueKey multi-factor for numerous applications. The tutorial to set up BlueKey multi-factor can be found on the ‘how to register’ page.
The Depaul students are also boosted to register for BlueKey multi-factor due to it will allow them to get the ability to reset a forgotten password without needing to call the Help Desk.
- Fewer username and password prompt
When the BlueKey is applied to more Depaul applications, you may see fewer prompts for your credentials when moving between systems, especially in case when you visit your BlueM@il and then visit Campus Connect. You may then see fewer prompts if you’re a staff using a Depaul-issued computer.
- Provide login experience consistently
Because a lot of services are moved to BlueKey login experience, however, it’ll be somewhat easier to recognize a legitimate Depaul service login as opposed to a malicious one crafted to steal your credentials.
Okay, those are the reasons why BlueKey is very important to provide a new seamless login experience. The point is, the BlueKey eventually will be used to login to nearly all Depaul services. However, the transition may take some time. Instead, you’re able to track their progress and see which Depaul services are using BlueKey at the BlueKey services schedule page.
Throughout the transition, the Depaul technology services are going to have numerous different login experiences in place. So, you probably need to use a different username format depending on which login page you see.
