Secure Your Smart Phone

If you'd like to set up a mobile device to access your e-mail, you will need to set a Google Apps password at start.nyu.edu (this is different from your NetID password). You will then need to configure your mobile device; see the Setting Up Your Mobile Device tab for instructions.

Mobile devices, such as smart phones, PDAs, and tablets, are computers with advanced operating systems capable of running robust applications and storing large amounts of data. It is essential that you enable the appropriate security controls to protect the data you store and access on them. In addition, the use of any mobile device to send, receive, view, transmit or store University related data must adhere to the Policy on Responsible Use of NYU Computers and Data.
