When Should I Share my Password?

by in

One day I received an e-mail from "support@widgets.edu" to my current university email account, saying I had reached my limit on email storage and they needed my password for maintenance, and if I did not go to a web page and give it to them, they would suspend my account.  Please be aware that staff members from T&C or any other department at CI will NEVER request that you send, transmit, email, enter into a link, or otherwise ask you for your password!  If you encounter a request of this sort, please DO NOT offer your information.  Delete the email or contact the Help Desk for guidance on what to do next. 

So... when should you share your password?  The answer to this question is always ... NEVER!
