About MFA

  • Multi-Factor Authentication adds an additional layer of security to your login process to prevent your credentials from being compromised.
  • By using more than one method of authentication, your identity is verified and kept safe from phishing and other cyber security attacks.
  • By using Microsoft Authenticator for MFA, you will be using something you know (your password) with something you have (your device) to confirm your identity.
  • All UWM Faculty and Staff must be enrolled with MFA as part of Information Security Administrative Procedure 1030.A.
  • For more information, see the FAQ on Microsoft MFA
