TSC 2022 Simplified Guide On Updated TPAY Terms And Conditions Of Use For Teachers!
(Updating TPAY- Phone And Email Validation)
One of the main reasons why TSC required that teachers update their TPAY profiles by validating their phone numbers and emails was to ensure that the security of their information is guaranteed.
The TPAY system handles very sensitive and personal information of teachers necessitating enhanced security. Instances of fraudsters infiltrating the system in the past have been reported. It has been reported that these fraudsters use details of legit users to gain access to the TPAY system thus commanding the system to carry out fraudulent transactions!
It is from this background that TSC has introduced a two-level authentification process, where the OTP is sent to the user’s official registered phone number or email to facilitate logging in. This will keep the online fraudsters at bay for without the OTP, accessing the TPAY portal will be a tall order.
With this in mind, the teachers’ employer has designed Terms and Conditions of use as follows:
