Multi-Factor Authentication

As part of Creighton's ongoing commitment to provide our students, faculty, staff and alumni the tools needed lockto work efficiently and safely, we have implemented a new feature for all Office 365 accounts: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA for short). MFA adds an additional layer of security to your account by requiring you to approve a login to your Office 365 account.

When signing in to Office 365, after entering your credentials, you will be prompted to confirm the login with a number of options, such as:

  • a text message sent to your phone containing a one-time code.
  • an approval notification using the Microsoft Authenticator smartphone application.

The video below explains how to setup MFA on your account for the first time or use the step-by-step written instructions. Additional information can be found on the FAQ page.
