Multi-Factor Authentication

To protect user accounts from unauthorized access,  ITS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) for faculty, staff, and student accounts when accessing personal and sensitive information. MFA works by requiring an additional factor, usually in the form of a number, in addition to your existing username and password. Because the code is time-limited (it changes every 60 seconds), it cannot be stolen or shared in advance. This makes it very effective in securing access to your account and the information it can access.

Setting up MFA in Okta takes less than fifteen minutes - you can get started by visiting this web page. More information on what the change will look like and answers to frequently asked questions are available here

If you currently use Duo MFA to secure authentication access to applications you currently use, you can continue to do so.  The instructions to designate Duo as your factor of authentication for Google applications can be found here
