New Security Feature Requires You to Enable a Lock Screen On Your Phone

On June 10, Google implemented a mandatory security feature that requires your mobile device to have a passcode enabled if you have your Adelphi Student Gmail account in any G Suite Apps on your phone. It is always recommended that you have a passcode enabled in order to prevent others from accessing your phone, especially in the case of theft or loss.

If you already have a passcode or screen lock setup this will not affect your device, but if you don’t have a passcode set up you will be required to do so in order to continue to access G Suite data including Gmail, Google Docs and Google Drive on your phone.

We want to thank you in advance for your understanding. Your security is a top priority that we take very seriously, and we will continue to take all measures to ensure that your information is safe.
