Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a secure authentication method that prevents malicious access to an account by using multiple methods of authentication.  This secure authentication can be configured to use one of the following methods:

Method 1 – Microsoft Authenticator App
This is the recommended method for MFA and includes two options

  • Option 1 – Receive notifications for authorization 
    This option allows you to simply accept or deny the authorization when you are notified through the Authenticator App.

  • Option 2 – User verification code 
    This option requires you to submit a random authorization code generated through the Authenticator App.

Method 2 – Authentication Code via text
This method will provide an authorization code via text which you will then submit for authentication.

Method 3 – Authentication Code via Phone call
This method can be used if you would prefer to receive a phone call to approve the authentication. This requires you to be near the phone in order to complete the process.  It is recommended that you use a cell phone.  Using an office or home phone will prevent authentication if you are not at the location when authentication is requested.
