ITS Safe Computing

Use a Secure Internet Connection

Use secure networks, such as your cellular carrier network, MWireless, or wired connections.

  • Wired connections to the Internet from on-campus computers, including Campus Computing Site computers, benefit from the university's secured networks.
  • MWireless is the most secure Wi-Fi network and should be used by all of the U-M community. Before using the service, you will need to configure settings on your Wi-Fi device. See Connecting to MWireless and UM Wireless Network.
  • The U-M Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides a secure computing experience when accessing a University of Michigan network from a remote location or when using a wireless connection.
    U-M Health System (UMHS) faculty and staff should use the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client provided by Medical Center Information Technology (MCIT) to access Protected Health Information (PHI), Clinical Network and Applications, Schedulon, and Printing, as well as to access file servers and internal UMHS web content. For more information, installers, and instructions, see VPN - Cisco AnyConnect SSL Client in the UMHS KnowledgeBase.
