New login requirement coming for OBI Reporting on Jan. 19, 2018

Wednesday, January 10, 2018
Sean O'Malley  

At noon on January 19, 2018, OBI Reporting will join a growing list of OHIO online services that feature a login protection called multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication turns your login into a two-step process:

  1. Entering a password.
  2. Confirming the login via smartphone app, text message, or automated phone call.

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.

Who needs to use multi-factor authentication?

On Jan. 19, any employee who has access to OBI Reporting will need to use multi-factor authentication when logging into that service. 

Other OHIO online services that feature multi-factor authentication currently include My Personal Information, PeopleSoft, Faculty & Advising Center, and e-Business.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.
