HarvardKey is Harvard University’s new secure credential for accessing University applications and services with a convenient login name and password. For alumni, HarvardKey replaces PIN and other current logins that provide access to the online alumni community. HarvardKey will be in front of the new online features rolling out in the fall, such as the alumni directory, discussion forums, and event registration. In order to access these new features, as well as previous online functions that required login, alumni must first claim their HarvardKey and re-register their account.
