Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) combines two or more independent credentials - what you know (your password) with something you have (mobile phone) in order to create a second layer of security for your UWin Account. Even if someone knows your password, they will be prevented from accessing your account when it is protected by MFA.
The new MFA system requires that all faculty, staff and students create at least one second factor for authentication. The first factor is your password. This document outlines the various options for the second factor, and explains the pro's and con's of each one.
