“2-Step” or “2-Factor” Verification protects you and the University by requiring you to provide an additional piece of information after you enter your password to verify that “you’re you.”

Your credentials are valuable to criminals and other unauthorized users, and they’ve increased their efforts to compromise you and the University through phishing emails. 2-Step can keep the bad guys out even if they get your username and password through a phishing attempt.

2-Step is quickly becoming the standard for business and education and you may already be using 2-Step to access your banking information or Gmail account.
