Does your department handle sensitive data?  Would you like to volunteer your department (or a select group) to opt-in?  Contact the OIT HelpDesk to get started!

When will you use Two-Factor Authentication?

Over the next year, any university application that uses your NetID and password will be updated to use 2FA.  Once you sign up, you will use 2FA for any application that has been set up to use 2FA.  As new apps are added, you’ll automatically be prompted.
