Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Service Description

MFA helps ensure a user's identity when attempting to use SVSU software and systems.  It requires SVSU users to present two pieces of evidence when logging in to any SVSU system.  One piece of evidence will be the SVSU username and password.  Users will choose the other method of evidence, or authentication, that best fits their lifestyle, from the available options.  Without authentication, your log in will fail.

Per the MFA User Guide once you have authenticated with MFA, The authentication will be valid for that system within that browser session for eight hours.  If you log out, you will have to re-authenticate and be MFA'd again.

If you get a MFA authorization request that you didn't initiate immediately change your password.  You can change your password on the Self-Service Password Reset Page (SSPR).
