University employees in campus, hospital, and health sciences organizations 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.

All University of Utah and University of Utah Health employees are required to use Duo 2FA for the university's single-sign-on (SSO) system (e.g., how employees access Box, Campus Information Services, and Kronos), VPN, Citrix, and ePrescribe. All university and U of U Health faculty, staff and affiliates, as well as students with access to restricted or sensitive data, are required to use Duo 2FA to access UMail and all university-licensed Microsoft Office 365 applications, including Skype for Business and Teams.
