Multi-factor Authentication service - Office 365

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

Introduction to MFA

ISG have completed a trial of Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) with email and Teams in Office 365.   

The pilot is now closed, but, if you would like to make use of this service, it will involve setting up MFA and then using this to access your Office 365 email and Teams. 

To sign up for the service, you will need to log into the University network or the VPN. You do not have to be logged in to the University network or the VPN to use email afterwards.

You will also need to have either a mobile or landline phone or a tablet which you are prepared to use to set up MFA and to verify your details.
