Why is Multi-Factor Authentication important to me?
There’s a continued uptick in cyber-attacks aimed at higher education, oftentimes targeting sensitive student data.
Passwords are increasingly easy to compromise. They can often be stolen, guessed, or hacked — you might not even know someone is accessing your account.
Multi-factor authentication adds a second layer of security by adding a verification step to OHIO logins, keeping your account secure even if your password is compromised. With Duo Push, you'll be alerted right away if someone is trying to log in as you.
This second factor of authentication is separate and independent from your username and password.
