Two Factor

As part of its ongoing cybersecurity strategy, the Division of IT has implemented Two-Factor Authentication.

Two-Factor Authentication will increase security measures on your account by requiring two steps to log in to your FIU services: something you know (your password) and something you have (a physical device, like your smartphone).

Because it requires two steps to log in, Two-Factor Authentication offers more account security than a password alone - it provides added protection for both individuals and the FIU community at large.

Think about it as using your bank card (something you have) without a PIN (something you know) - what will happen if a criminal gains access to your bank card?

It's easier than you think for a hacker to gain access to your password. Enroll in Two-Factor Authentication today.
