At noon on Mar. 15, 2017, My Personal Information, Ohio University's web app for accessing W2s, direct deposit, pay slips, and paid time off, will start requiring multi-factor authentication from all locations, including on-campus. This added login protection already is required from off-campus.
Any employee who has not already enrolled in multi-factor authentication for another university service like e-Biz or PeopleSoft will need to do so if they wish to access My Personal Information after Mar. 15.
Multi-factor authentication is a security measure that turns an OHIO login into a two-step process:
This confirmation step helps protect the university from data loss and you from identity theft should you fall victim to a phishing scam, because a scammer would need both your password and your phone to access your account.
Visit the multi-factor authentication enrollment page and follow the instructions. Note: you must be on an OHIO campus and connected to either the wired network or the main "OHIO University" WiFi to enroll. If you are physically unable to come to an OHIO campus, you can contact the IT Service Desk.
