Student Multi-Factor Authentication FAQ

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to a resource such as an application, online account, or a VPN.  Rather than just asking for a username and password, MFA requires one or more additional verification factors, which decreases the likelihood of a successful compromise.
