As part of improving digital security IT are making a minor change to the login process to Office 365.  You will now enter your username and password on a Microsoft branded login page, instead of a University of Reading branded one.

What is changing?

Old method for logging in to Office 365:

  1. Enter username on Microsoft branded login page
  2. Enter password on University of Reading branded login page

New method for logging in to Office 365:

  1. Enter username on Microsoft branded login page
  2. Enter password on Microsoft branded page.

The only thing changing is where you enter your password. Before, you entered your username into a Microsoft branded login page which then redirected you to a University of Reading branded login page where you would enter your password. Now, you will enter your username the same way as before but will be redirected to a similarly branded Microsoft (including a UoR logo) login page where you will enter your password.
