My.Scranton is a web-based portal that provides students, faculty and staff an entry point to key functionality, such as Outlook, SharePoint, Desire2Learn, and Ellucian Banner Self-Service and Administrative applications. Over the Fall semester, a new version of the portal was released that provides a cleaner, simpler, better-organized and responsive design.
Many integrations within the my.scranton portal make use of single sign-on technology, allowing a user to provide their credentials once and be logged in seamlessly to other applications. This technology makes use of “cookies” stored in the browser, which are set to expire at the end of the browser’s session.
To safeguard your credentials, especially on a public computer or device, it is best practice to close your browser to destroy any “cookies” that were set for your single sign-on sessions to work. This is true for not only my.scranton, but for any web session where you enter credentials. Be safe and close your browser!
