Two Factor Authentication is Coming Soon

Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is a second layer of security that protects your accounts, even if someone obtains your password. With one click, you can use a device you always have with you, like your smartphone, to ensure that it’s really you accessing your accounts.

Learn more by watching this 2FA overview (< 2 minutes).


More people are becoming victims of phishing attempts. Hackers are getting more sophisticated. Two Factor Authentication will protect your account even if someone gets your password. A hacker would have to obtain BOTH your password AND the phone (or other device) you are using to access your account. 

Using 2FA will protect you and Loyola.


All Loyola employees will need to enroll in and use Two Factor Authentication for logging in to certain systems.


Phase 1: You must use 2FA for logging into Loyola Workspace starting at the end of December 2016. 
Phase 2: You must use 2FA for logging in to Office 365 email starting around April 2017.
Phase 3: You must use 2FA for logging into Inside Loyola starting around July 2017.

What do you need to do?  

Enroll in 2FA prior to those dates. The sooner the better for you and for Loyola.
