Add/Change Verification Methods

Add/Change Verification Methods

Multi-factor authentication is enabled for all student email accounts.  This means that you will need to register a device capable of receiving the second factor of authentication.  Students may elect to receive a text message, a phone call, push notifications from an app, or a token generated by an app.  Students may also setup more than one form of secondary verification incase their primary verification method becomes unavailable.  We strongly recommend that you setup at least two different verification methods.  Some older and third party apps that do not support multi-factor authentication require an app password. 

1. Navigate to Additional Security Verification.

2. Login to your account if prompted.

Click here if you do not know how to log in.

4. The Microsoft Authenticator app can send push notifications to your device and provide a revolving OTP (one-time password) code.

5. Third-party authenticator apps can provide a revolving OTP (one-time password) code.

Note: An internet connection is required on your device to receive the push notifications from the Microsoft Authenticator app.  OTP codes do not require your device to have an internet connection.
