- Available online, on desktop computers, and on most mobile devices
- Faculty and staff can also download Microsoft Office software via Office 365, which includes free access to a full version of Microsoft Office that can be installed on up to five computers and five mobile devices.

To send sensitive or private data to people outside of Tufts (i.e. addresses other than @tufts.edu), simply add the word “secure” in square brackets – [secure] – to the subject line of any email you send from your @tufts.edu address. The recipient of your email will receive a link directing them to a secure Tufts website where they can read and reply to your email.
While secure email provides extra protection when sending messages to non-Tufts addresses, it does not eliminate risk and does not prevent recipients from forwarding your email. You should ensure that you are in compliance with applicable laws and Tufts policies when communicating sensitive data.
Please note that email sent within the Tufts network is always encrypted and you do not need to take any additional steps to secure your messages.
