Office 365 - Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Your password can be easily compromised. 2FA authentication increases your account security by requiring multiple forms of verification to prove your identity when signing into an application.

Setting up a 2FA authentication will enable you to sign in using:
  • Push Method - A notification will be sent to your smart device via the Microsoft Authenticator app. You will need to press "Approve" to continue with your sign-in.
  • Verification Code: A 6 digit code is generated in the Microsoft Authenticator app. You will need to type this code as part of your sign-in.
  • Phone Call - An automated system will call your cell phone or landline. You will be instructed to press a key to confirm your sign-in.
