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. 


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
