One of the best ways to safeguard your Chapman University account is having a strong password. IS&T is now offering an additional layer of account protection call Multi Factor Authentication (MFA). This feature offers users the ability to stop unauthorised users from accessing sensitive documents and information by requiring them to verify their account access. Many of you have already used this type of service at some point in time. Online banking, Google account verification, Amazon.com account verification. You have the option for a text, phone call, or email with a six digit code that is unique to your account. For Chapman University MFA you will only be prompted for the verification code when you are not on the University Network (eduroam).
This new service is not replacing VPN connections and is completely optional. Your account settings will not be altered in any way if you chose to opt in for MFA services. The only difference will be that you will need to enter a six-digit verification code or approve authentication via the Microsoft Authentication app; available for Android and Apple devices.
For more information about MFA or if you are interested in opting in for MFA service, please visit mfa.chapman.edu and follow the instructions for signing up.
