Setting up a passcode/PIN on a mobile phone

Before configuring your @northwestern.edu email account on a mobile device, you must establish a passcode, PIN, or password to access your phone. This protects University data from unauthorized access in the event that your mobile device is lost or stolen. If you choose to opt out of setting a PIN or password on your mobile device, you may still use the Outlook Web App (OWA) from your mobile device to access Northwestern Collaboration Services email and calendaring events.
