New login requirement coming for My OHIO Success Network on Apr. 18, 2017

Thursday, March 23, 2017
Sean O'Malley  

At noon on April 18, 2017, Starfish, the software that supports the My OHIO Success Network, 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 Apr. 18, any employee who has access to Starfish will need to use multi-factor authentication when logging into the My OHIO Success Network. 

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

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