As part of OIIT's ongoing commitment to provide our Students, Faculty, and Staff the tools needed to work efficiently and safely, we are implementing a new feature for all Office 365 accounts: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA for short). MFA adds an additional layer of security to your Office 365 account by requiring you to approve each login to your Office 365 account. When signing in to Office 365, after entering your credentials you will be prompted to confirm the login with a number of options, such as:
  • A text message sent to your phone containing a one-time code
  • An approval notification using the Microsoft Authenticator smartphone application

This feature is being implemented to ensure that your account, and your data, in Office 365 remain safe and secure. Here are links that will help you with the new MFA

Blow is a short video on how to set up the MFA for first time user.
