New Sign-In Page for Google Apps Services
Google has made a change to the sumail.su.edu login
page, they changed it from our branded web page to the "normal" Google
login page. They have done this to all Google Apps domains not just SU.
The biggest impact for the SU community is you will now have to enter
your full e-mail address to login. On the old page you could just enter
username, now you will need to enter firstname.lastname@example.org.
One new feature is the Stay signed in checkbox is selected by
default. If you want to sign out of Google Apps automatically when you
close your browser, you should deselect this checkbox. If you leave this
checkbox selected when you sign in, you will remain signed in for two
weeks or until you click the Sign out button that appears when you click on your photo in the upper right corner.
security flaw in iOS devices has been fixed by Apple through an update
that should be available in your settings. This flaw allowed hackers to
read information that you access through secure websites. If you
haven't done so yet, please update your iOS devices as soon as possible!
