User Security


The Gateway provides access to many secure WUSTL systems. To prevent unauthorized access, please follow the simple steps below to prevent unauthorized access to your protected information:



1. Never share your password with others

The University's Information Security Policy requires each user to be responsible for protecting their username and password from unauthorized use. Individuals are responsible for any security violations associated with their usernames.

2. Logout at the end of your session

To logout of the Gateway, always click the "Logout" link at the top right of the Menu of Activities.
