New Security Feature from the Office of Information Technology

As part of Florida Atlantic University’s ongoing commitment to safeguard your information, the Office of Information Technology is in the process of implementing an additional layer of security, multi-factor authentication (MFA) for students. Most banks, Google, Facebook, and Apple already have a similar system that prompts you to confirm the login either by entering a code or accepting the activity.

Starting Monday, Oct. 15, students will have the option to opt-in to use the new MFA feature for services such as Self-Service. You will be prompted to confirm your login activity by using the multi-factor authentication app, DUO, on your smartphone. Beginning 2019, this will be mandatory for all students, so we encourage you to opt-in now. To enroll, look for the DUO prompt when logging in to any FAU service that uses the FAU single-sign-on functionality.

DUO is available for both iPhone and Android devices. DUO works on and offline by using either the push or passcode technology. For more information, visit fau.edu/oit/accounts/mfa.php.
