Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

What is Multifactor Authentication?

MFA, or multi-factor authentication, is an additional security measure which helps protect your Microsoft Office 365 account. MFA requires you to login using something you know (your password) and something you own (i.e. your phone). This creates layered protection that helps keep your accounts secure and helps prevent hackers from gaining access to your personal information. You may already use MFA for your bank account, personal email, or even Amazon Prime! 

All Century College students are automatically enrolled in MFA, which means when you access your email or any Microsoft Office 365 application online (such as OneDrive), you will enter and your StarID password, and you will get a phone call, a text, or a notification from the Microsoft Authenticator app.

How do I enroll if I don’t have a cell or smart phone?
