On Thursday, February 22nd , the UWin Gmail system used by all students at the University of Windsor will be switched to a different authentication service. Authentication is the process of recognizing and verifying a user's identity. Each user of the UWin Gmail system is required to provide their UWin ID and password (i.e. their credentials) on the login page before they can access the system. The credentials provided are then compared to those stored in our central directory.
The biggest impact on the users will be a change to the appearance of the login page. This notice is being provided to announce that this is an expected change and to allay potential security concerns of the new site being fraudulent.
The currently existing login page begins with the URL “https://uwinid.uwindsor.ca/” and is displayed as:
The new login page begins with the URL “https://login.net.uwindsor.ca/” and is displayed as:
The change will take effect around 7:30 am. Any issues related to this change should be reported to the Service Desk by opening a ticket at uwindsor.ca/help or calling 519-253-3000 x4440
