What is 2FA?
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of defense against cyber criminals by requiring users to provide additional ID verification when attempting to access Chapman University systems from off-campus only. So even if your Chapman University account login information is stolen, the hackers will be unable to access your email and other Chapman resources.
Where else have you seen 2FA being used?
Today, most websites sch as banks, online shopping, and education require users to create an online profile that is password protected. Most of these same sites now require users to authenticate their some form of multi-factor authentication. The most common methods used is the six digit verification code you receive via sms text or authenticator app.
How will 2FA affect me?
The only time you will be required to verify your account when signing in is when you are not hardwired to the Chapman Network or connected to the Eduroam wifi network.
Although you have until January 15th to register your account, we highly recommend that you do not wait until the last minute to register.
