Many campus users are receiving e-mails claiming to come from Caltech that ask them to provide their usernames and passwords. Please be aware that this is a form of security attack known as “phishing” designed to fool users into giving their usernames and passwords to unknown persons. Please do not reply to these e-mails.
We will never ask users for their passwords by e-mail or phone. If you receive any confusing or worrisome e-mails about any of your GPS accounts, we strongly recommend you take the cautious approach by contacting the GPS Help Desk firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling one of our system administrators directly.
