Multi-Factor Authentication

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 (ISO) 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).

Employees with access to sensitive online information resources such as myUCF are required to use MFA during sign on.

All employees must enroll in and use the MFA service to view or change their direct deposit and W-2 information.

For more information including instructions on enrolling in the MFA service, please use the resources provided on this page.
