On November 15, 2021, UWM’s new digital identity experience will be in place. On that date, when you log into UWM services, you will be prompted to enter information to complete your transition to this new digital identity experience. Your digital identity at UWM is made up of three parts: your username, password and multi-factor authentication (MFA). The combined use of these three items ensures the security of your account at UWM.
As part of this implementation, there will be updates to password management, more consistency between IT systems, and a campus-wide transition to Microsoft for multi-factor authentication.
At 10 am on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, University IT Services will host a live demonstration of the new digital identity experience through Teams. IT professionals will provide background information on this change, walkthrough Microsoft MFA, and be able to answer questions faculty and staff may have. Please use this link to join the event. Following the live event, a recording of the demo will be available using the same link.
