Registration of MFA (multi-factor authentication)

At ORU, we carry out security-enhancing measures and will therefore introduce MFA (multi-factor authentication) on selected systems for all users with an ORU account.

MFA involves two verification steps:
1 - Enter your username and password.
2 - Verify yourself with an app, with a code on a text message, or similar.

Install Microsoft Authenticator on your mobile phone via the App Store on an iPhone/iPad or from the Play Store on an Android device.

Once the app is installed, move on to register your account for MFA.

For this, you will need a computer and a mobile/tablet.

Go to on your computer via a web browser of your choice.

How often do I need to use MFA?

Expect to need to authenticate when signing in at least once per day. Sometimes more often, depending on how you work, what systems you use, what kind of device you use to access those services, and how often you change your location, e.g. from your workplace to a classroom, to home or some other place.

If you have an ORU computer and are on campus, you will have fewer authentication requirements than if you work elsewhere.

In addition, Office apps require re-authentication with regularity, both on desktop and mobile devices.

IT Services is working to improve the user experience with as few authentication requests as necessary.
