What is Multi-Factor Authentication and how do I use it?
MFA is an additional layer of security that can prevent unauthorised access to your University account.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security that can prevent unauthorised access to your University account by combining something you know (your username and password) with something you have (e.g. a code from a mobile application) to prove your identity.
MFA is a measure to combat the increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. Once set up with MFA, even if an attacker manages to learn your password, they will still need your mobile to login to your email or SharePoint.
