Traveling with Technology Overseas - UWL Faculty/Staff

When traveling overseas with your computer, here are some helpful tips to ensure a safe and technology-effective trip.


1. Double check your password has been updated and it will not expire while out of the country. Remember passwords expire every 180 days

  • UWL Macs: Please use Enterprise Connect that is pre-loaded on your UWL Mac to change or update your password. 
  • Information about Enterprise Connect: https://kb.uwlax.edu/internal/85618



2. Be extra responsible and careful of your UWL laptop and/or device(s) to prevent theft. 



3. Apply any pending software updates to your UWL laptop and/or devices(s) before leaving the U.S.
  • Contact the Eagle Help Desk or your department's dedicated ITS Support Consultant for further assistance and/or questions about your software updates.
 


4. Make sure you will have access to a Duo device and it is working properly before leaving the country.  A Duo fob is the best alternative if you do not have access to a mobile phone. 



5. Connect to the UWL VPN (Virtual Private Network) called Cisco AnyConnect when using your UWL laptop out of the country.
