Identity Coordinators –

In order to improve user security, UFIT will be implementing changes to GatorLink Account Management in Spring, 2016.

The new system will require a second factor authentication (code received via text or voice call) for account creation and password changes.  Additionally, the new system will notify users by both business and personal e-mail addresses of any account events and changes, which will aid in early detection of any attempts to compromise accounts.

In order to effectively implement this change, members of the UF community will need to ensure their identity registry information – specifically date of birth, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses (personal and UF business) – is current.  We are requesting your assistance in preparing for this transition by working with your users to update and correct these fields as needed in myUFL, additional information on registry fields can be found here.

Authentication codes will be delivered via the contact method selected by the user, and will be required to proceed with account creation and password resets.  Users will need to validate against their information in the Registry, so accurate data is essential.

As we get closer to transitioning to the new system, we will schedule a series of town hall meetings to showcase the new GLAM system.

Please send any questions to Warren Curry (whcurry@ufl.edu) or Tina Velez (kvelez@ufl.edu).

Thank you,

UF IT
