Updated on 4 October 2020

This security method makes you perform an added step at login when you're away from the campus network.

Set up MFA for the first time

Pick mobile app to get your second login factor via the Microsoft Authenticator app on your smartphone or tablet. Alternatively, you can choose to get a code by call or text.

Use MFA at login

When you try to login away from the campus network, no matter what device you're using, you will be asked to enter your second login factor. Not always, but sometimes.

Change and manage MFA setup

It's best if you add alternative contact methods right after setup. If you get a new mobile device, update your settings and change to using the mobile app when travelling overseas.
