Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

The University uses Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) as an additional security measure to further protect the information we keep from cyber threats and unauthorised access. The University has an obligation to keep your data and privacy safe and secure, which includes using MFA to help protect us from criminals trying to log-in as you, and gain access to both your, and other people's information.

Before you can use personal devices to log on to University services such as email, Moodle, Staff Intranet etc - you will need to set up one or more MFA authentication methods.

For example - after logging on to email on a personal device you may be asked to enter a one-time passcode Illustrative image that can be sent to your mobile device. Illustrative image

Setting up MFA

Enroling for MFA involves completing some details, and downloading an App for your mobile phone.  Most people choose the App, as this can be set to pop up a message when you try to log in, which can be verified in various ways including using the finger print recognition that is embedded in smartphones, or alternatively their text, or email capabilities.
