Question about Study.com - saraholson - 11-08-2019

Hi all, I live on the border between 2 states and i am doing contract work in both right now.. .meaning sometimes i am in one and sometimes i am in a hotel in the other for weeks at a time....

I wanted to make sure this isn't going to flag Study to think my account is hacked since I will be in 2 different places? The contract work starts next week

thank you for any insight Smile

To clarify i obv won't be in 2 places AT ONCE... but a few days in one, a few days in another, or maybe a few weeks back and forth

I doubt it will be an issue. When I was doing my undergrad, I took a ton of courses via Study.com and several of them I took while traveling or visiting with relatives during holidays, etc. I was never contacted about this being a problem or that they were concerned about my account being misused.

In any case, if it were to be a problem, I suspect it would be something that could be easily cleared up with a phone call to explain the circumstances.

OK thanks Smile

My bank always flags my accounts even if I warn them i am traveling... its a huge pain... hopefully Study won't be that bad

We have used Study.com since back when it was free and was called Education Portal.
We have car schooled and travelled extensively while using Study.com and never had an issue other than needing a hotspot with which to access the website.

HTH.

I travel between states, for work and home. I have never had a problem logging into the site or requiring any additional security checks. You should be fine.
