Do Not Let Your Password Expire

Two kids are very excited to use a laptop.

Every NetID password at the University of Illinois expires annually. You will be locked out of your email, campus WiFi, and a variety of services if you do not set a new password before your old password expires. Make sure you take the necessary steps before your password expires.

What You Need to Do

Everyone's NetID password expires at a different time as opposed to having tens of thousands of passwords expire all at once across campus.

  Ending Support for McAfee Products on University Computers

Person walks path at Allerton Park and Retreat Center

If your University computer or device is using McAfee antivirus or encryption software, you need to switch to a new solution by the end of 2016.  Effective January 1, 2017, the University of Illinois will no longer support McAfee antivirus software, full disk encryption software, or the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO).

McAfee ePO centrally manages McAfee software in a given environment. It’s the brain that controls all McAfee software installed on University machines, including new releases, updates, and bug fixes.
