Extra layer of protection for your account
SFU’s Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) refers to using two or more independent items to verify your identity, typically something you know (i.e., your SFU computing ID and password) and something you have (i.e., a time-based code).
By using MFA, your digital identity, data and access to systems are still protected even if your password is compromised.
Who needs to set up MFA?
MFA enrollment is required for the following SFU computing accounts:
- Faculty and staff (including TAs and RAs)
- New SFU students (required to enroll in MFA by the end of your first semester)
- Sponsored accounts
Do I need to have cellular service or data coverage to use the MFA Applications?
No; Aside from the initial app download, TOTP MFA applications do not require any internet connection, cell service, or data coverage to display the MFA codes.
Note: TOTP (Time-based One-time Password) protocol for multi-factor authentication requires a time-based (30 second) code that the user must enter. It changes every 30 seconds to maximize security.
Set up MFA
The initial setup includes three parts which will take approximately 5 minutes.
