Microsoft Copilot – Signing into Copilot with your UWGB account

This document details how UWGB faculty, staff, and students can sign into Microsoft Copilot with their UWGB account.

Microsoft Copilot is available to all UW-Green Bay faculty, staff, and students with enhanced data protections when signed in with a UWGB account. Copilot is Microsoft’s generative artificial intelligence (AI) platform and can be used to generate written and visual content based on user prompts. Copilot has access to current internet data, enabling it to provide up-to-date responses to requests, but its responses may contain inaccuracies. 

Unlike other commercial AI products, Copilot provides additional data protection and enhanced privacy when accessing it while being signed in with your UWGB account. Even so, you should not enter sensitive information like bank accounts or personal health records into Microsoft Copilot.
