Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is being implemented for customers of Single Sign-on (SSO) across the University. Anyone with a Single Sign-On account will be expected to adopt multi-factor authentication. This will include:
- Second factor – A second step will be added which involves customers receiving a code (e.g. via a mobile, landline or text message) or generating a code using the mobile app (this requires no mobile (4G etc.) or Wi-Fi connectivity to their mobile device) clicking approve and entering the code into the required field when prompted. Once the second factor is activated, the requirement to enter a code will depend on individual circumstances such as devices, settings and location, and so most users will rarely be prompted.
- Help and guidance is available for setting up Multi-factor authentication.
