Starting Saturday, Sept. 30, all employees who connect their smartphones to the UIW email system will need to have a four-digit (or stronger) Personal Identification Number (PIN) lock enabled on their device.

Those who do not have a PIN will be prompted to create one.  For more info and instructions, visit this link or contact Neil Schroeder at (210) 805-2300 or nschroed@uiwtx.edu.
