University of Utah students, faculty, staff, affiliates, and alumni are required to use two-factor authentication (2FA) when logging in to use certain online U applications and IT systems.

Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security by requiring a user to log in with a username/password combo plus a second method of verifying the user’s identity. The second method is something the user has physical access to, like a cellphone or tablet. This ensures that even if a malicious actor manages to obtain a user’s login credentials, the information is useless without access to the user’s secondary device.
