Information about Geneseo's Central Authentication system that supports single sign-on and its Keep me logged in on this device feature.

Verify Secure Connection to Geneseo Central Authentication

Malicious links and emails will sometimes direct you to fake impersonations of our Central Authentication System that are designed to trick you to enter your Geneseo credentials. You can easily verify you are on the official Geneseo Central Authentication page by looking for the words "SUNY Geneseo" in green letters somewhere in your browser's address bar. For example:

Keep me logged in on this device

When you check the Keep me logged in on this device box on Geneseo's login screen it will set a secure cookie on your device that will allow you login to any Geneseo services that support SSO for up to 2 weeks without having to enter your password again. This time may be lowered by many factors including individual apps requesting a lower authentication time period, or an app logging you out. If you are on a computer you trust, CIT recommends you check this box.


Do not check this box if you are on a shared computer.
