fbnt.bmpNo Such Thing as a Private Social Network Tip

There’s no such thing as a "private" social media site. Search engines can turn up posts years after the publication date, comments can be forwarded or copied, and a social media platform’s privacy policies may change over time. Personal social media sites are not exempt from scrutiny. The content on your personal social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter, may be seen by your colleagues despite your privacy settings.

Avoiding a Locked Account Tip

When resetting your SHSU computer account password it is imperative that you are only logged into the computer that you are using to reset your password. If you logged in to other computers, even off-campus, the system will lock your account.

If your account has accidentally been locked, you will be forced to log out of all the computers you are using and wait fifteen minutes for your account to become unlocked.

Using the remote desktop connection also counts as being logged into a separate machine so be sure to log off of the remote desktop connection before resetting your password.
