Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an electronic authentication method in which a user is granted access to a website or application only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence to an authentication mechanism. MFA provides another layer of security to your account by requiring a code or notification to be sent to a personal or university device (usually a cell phone). MFA prevents an unauthorized user from accessing your account even if your password becomes compromised and helps protect the university.
