  • In person at Computing Services in Morgan 205. A government-issued picture ID is required to verify identity. Acceptable IDs include state-issued driver license, state-issued ID card, or US government-issued student Visa. The account is secured and an account validation letter is printed and handed to the individual.
  • In person or by phone to the Technology Helpdesk.
    • For phone reporting, the account holder will need to verify identity by providing the last four digits of their social security number. If an individual does not have a social security number on file, the phone option is not available. The account is secured and an account validation letter is printed the next business day. That letter is mailed to the last known address of the individual.
    • In person, a government-issued picture ID is required to verify identity. Acceptable IDs include state-issued driver license, state-issued ID card, or US government-issued student Visa. The account is secured and an account validation letter is printed. That letter may be picked up in Morgan 205.

In either case the individual should provide their BUnetID and a date they suspect the account was compromised. That data may be necessary to provide a “Last known valid address” for a student.
