Multifactor Authentication service - Azure Virtual Desktop

Staff and students are invited to sign up for a Multi-factor Authentication service being run by Information Services.

University users of the Azure Virtual Desktop service, which provides them access to applications not available to be installed on their own computers, need to make use of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in order to access it.

A mobile or landline phone (or a tablet) can be used in order to set up MFA and to verify your details. Alternatively, if you have a Windows computer, you can use Authy without needing a separate device.
