Today’s sophisticated cyber security threats necessitate the use of strong authentication systems to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive online information resources. The Information Security Office (InfoSec) and UCF IT implemented the Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) service to protect myUCF and other systems containing sensitive information.

A system protected with multi-factor authentication asks users to verify their identity two different ways during the sign on process. For example, myUCF requires users to enter a password (the first factor) and use a second device such as their mobile device to click an “approve” button or provide a passcode sent to it (the second factor).

Using MFA to protect your accounts

MFA is required when using privileged access or when accessing highly restricted data. It is highly recommended for all other use cases. MFA is available to both employees and students.
