Bogus email messages have been circulating that request personal information about your email account. Due to these phishing scams, students, faculty, and staff are reminded that Penn State will never ask you for your Access Account userid, password, or other confidential information via email. However, when the date draws near to change your Access Account password, ITS will send you a reminder via email. This message directs you to the www.work.psu.edu web site. This email is legitimate and you do need to take the appropriate action to change your password.
