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.
