What is Multi-Factor Authentication?

 

Multi-factor authentication (also referred to as MFA) using the Duo application is a security requirement for accessing your EEPMBA Student Technology Ecosystem. 

Below are resources to set up your multi-factor authentication, and how to subsequently log into your accounts after the feature is set up.

After you have set up multi-factor authentication, you will have to log in with it to use your university online resources. Any device will require authentication, and you can keep your authentication for 12 hours if you choose. 

If you need access to university online resources (including Canvas, MyUW, Box, or other online software and services), you will need your chosen login device with you to authenticate your log-in; this includes accessing Canvas in class for group work, assignments, and examinations.
