2-Factor Authentication at UD
2-factor authentication or "2FA" is a security measure that verifies your identity when you log into protected systems. As "2-factor" indicates, you verify your identity with two forms of information:
- Something you know: your UD password, AND
- Something you have: your phone or token
2FA technology provides added security to UD data systems (see full list) in case your password is compromised.
University of Dayton employees, including part-time, UDRI employees and contractors, are required to use 2-factor authentication when logging in to protected applications. Student employees (including GAs) will be required to use 2FA starting spring 2017.
