Please remember that the University will never send you an email to ask for your username and password. If you receive an email that looks authentic and appears to be from the University and is asking you for this information, please do not respond. Instead, report it to the IT Department. If you are ever unsure then please email servicedesk@abdn.ac.uk and ask for advice. Do not open any attachments or click on any links until IT have confirmed the email is genuine.
