UMSL Faculty & Staff Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) – July 08, 2020

Effective July 8, 2020, all UMSL Faculty and Staff user accounts will use Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) when logging into Microsoft products, including Outlook, Outlook Web Access, Microsoft Teams, and Office 365.  Multi-Factor Authentication provides an additional layer of security by requiring you to receive and enter a temporary passcode when logging on, which helps ensure that your credentials cannot be used by anyone other than you. This is part of a system wide project to better protect the information of the University.

ITS recommends that you use a desktop computer to walk through the instructions for mobile device installs before July 8th. For setup instructions please visit: http://umsl.edu/technology/Microsoft-Multi-Factor-Authentication-Setup.pdf

To begin using Microsoft MFA, download the Microsoft Authentication App from the app store on your mobile device. Then, register your account at aka.ms/mfasetup.
