Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is required for all staff and students who wish to access services such as Office 365, Moodle, Apps Anywhere when not on the campus network.
MFA provides added security to your account, ensuring that it cannot be used without your knowledge.
When MFA is enabled, you will be prompted to confirm your identity by a separate method - typically through a code provided by text message to your mobile phone or via the Microsoft Authenticator app.
Without access to your physical mobile device, remote attackers can’t pretend to be you to gain unauthorised access to your account.
You will receive a MFA prompt when logging on to the following services from off campus:
- Office 365
- Apps Anywhere
