Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for Faculty/Staff

Multifactor Authentication Diagram

What is Multifactor Authentication (MFA)?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a powerful tool against stolen credentials and phishing attacks. MFA requires a preconfigured authentication device to deliver a PIN code (like a cell phone text message) to be used along with username-password before an individual can log in to certain TCC resources.  

What is happening?

To safeguard your Faculty/Staff TCC computer account, TCC will be activating Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for logging into your TCC account when you are off campus. 

When?

Beginning Tuesday, May 19th, 2020.

What do I need to do?

Before May 19th, please follow this guide or this video to will walk you through MFA setup.  This will allow for a second verification of your credentials when you are logging into TCC resources from off-campus. When you are on-campus and logged into a TCC computer, you will not be required to use the MFA.  

!!! Setup of your MFA features will need to be done on or before May 19th, 2020
