Google has been updating it's authentication methods to allow for new safety features such as two-factor authentication. A side-effect of that has required us to change how you access your Smoogle account, so starting Wednesday May 28th you will access your Smoogle account using your Smith email address as the username and a separate Google password. You will no longer use your University Directory ID.

On or before the change over date of May 28th you will need to set a Google password on your account, by going to and logging in with your University Directory ID and password. You will then be prompted to set your new Google password. From that point on you log in to your Smoogle account with your full Smith email address and Google password whether using a web browser or mobile phone or tablet. 

We will be delivering a flyer to everyone's office with more detailed instructions over the next week and will send further reminders via email.. We apologize for the inconvenience that the timing and changes of this may cause. You can find more detailed information on these changes and what impact they have to your regular working habits at
