This landing page contains links to all the University's MFA instructions.
Multifactor Authentication (MFA) improves information security by making scam attempts more difficult for cybercriminals. You can choose to ask for authentication requests every 90 days per device to avoid receiving the requests continuously. MFA is a feature that provides additional security when logging in to many of the University's services, and it uses a separate device to authenticate.
Recommended, easiest way:
- Microsoft Authenticator app on your smartphone (push message)
Other alternative means of authentication:
- Authentication with a single-use code (TOTP code)
You can enable and adjust multifactor authentication methods at https://mysignins.microsoft.com/security-info. Follow the instructions on the page.
This means that you can add several methods just to be sure and choose an alternative method during the authentication phase if you are in a situation where you do not have the opportunity to use your main authentication method.
