Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an enhanced log-in method.
All university employees must begin using two-factor authentication to access sensitive university data.
Two-factor authentication provides better account protection than merely using a password.
If your password is stolen or compromised, having 2FA set up will require the thief to also have possession of your phone in order to access your account. Merely having your pin and password is no longer enough to change your personal information.
