Google Apps at USC: Password and Privacy Information
To protect students' USC passwords, there will be two passwords associated with Google Apps at USC accounts. Students will use their USC passwords to log into Google’s web-based applications through the USC login gateway, or authentication system. Students will use a separate Google password for non-web-based services, such as accessing email through mobile devices or email programs like Outlook or Thunderbird.
USC passwords and Google (Google Apps at USC) passwords must be changed separately. USC and Google Apps at USC passwords can be changed and reset at the ITS password change page.
Before creating their Google Apps at USC accounts, students will have to review the privacy information associated with the Google Apps at USC account below:
- USC will send Google students’ names, USC email addresses, and the Google passwords that students create for use with their Google Apps at USC accounts.
- Student names and USC email addresses will be visible to other Google Apps at USC users in collaborative spaces, such as shared documents and shared calendars.
- If a document is shared with individuals who have standard Gmail accounts, these individuals will see the names and email addresses of all the people sharing a document, including those of USC students.
