Using Zoom Instead of Blackboard Collaborate- Be Aware
If you have been using Zoom for web conferencing during COVID-19 remote operations, please be aware of a recent breach that has compromised individual accounts. If you used your Buffalo State e-mail address and password to set up a Zoom account, it is recommended that you change both your Zoom and Buffalo State passwords, and do not use the same password for both accounts.
Please note: Blackboard Collaborate is the official web conferencing tool supported by Buffalo State College.
Never use the same password for more than one account. Once your user name and password are compromised, criminals will use the information to try to access banking systems, payroll systems, and vendor systems (Amazon, Wegmans, Macy’s, Barnes & Noble, etc.).
