What is Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)?
Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security that makes it harder for hackers to log in to your account. With MFA, you will use something you know (your password) with something you have (your phone) to confirm your identity when signing in.
How do I set up MFA?
Two versions of the same step-by-step guides to set up your Multi-Factor Authentication can be viewed below.
MFA Options for Moraine Park
Take a moment to understand the options for MFA at Moraine Park, and determine which meets your needs.
- Microsoft Authenticator is an app that installs on your smart phone. This is our recommended method. Once installed, approvals are very quick and easy.
- You can also use a cell phone to receive a text message or a phone call to use as an authentication factor. Selecting “text message” will deliver a code to your phone which needs to be entered to complete the authentication process.
- Selecting “telephone call” requires the dialed number to be answered to complete the authentication process. We would NOT recommend using “telephone call” as a method on a land line.
If you do not have a smart phone or cell phone, please contact us at AskIT@morainepark.edu and we will provide a process that will work for you.
