Multi factor authentication (MFA), increases account security by requiring multiple forms verification to prove your identity while signing in to an application. Only CU Boulder students, faculty, and staff are now able to securely log into Office 365 using MFA. Do you want to opt in to the use of MFA before it is rolled out across campus?  office.com/setup getting the installation product key 2021

To receive a text message, or phone call, register your phone number when you register for MFA. After registering your phone, you will be able to download the Microsoft Authenticate Mobile App. It allows you to easily login to your smartphone or smartwatch by simply clicking a button.

Upon next login to Office 365 you will be prompted for multi-factor authentication. Below is a screenshot. Step-by-step instructions to register can be found below by clicking Login using Phone Authentication. You can find more information in our Multi-Factor Authentication FAQ.
