MULTI FACTOR AUTHENTICATION

Below are the options for MFA, “Notify me through app”, and “Use Verification Code from app or token” do not require the user to input any personal information including phone numbers, but you need to have the Microsoft Authenticator App installed on a Phone OR Tablet.

  1. Notify me through app

This DOES NOT REQUIRE PERSONAL INFORMATION (No phone number required), all that is required is a phone/tablet that has the Microsoft Authenticator App installed from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.   Once the user authenticates a Pop Up will appear on the phone/tablet to Approve OR Deny Entry.

  • Call my authentication phone

The user needs to provide a phone number (Cellular OR landline).  A phone call will be made to the authenticated phone and the user will need to press “#” to Approve Entry.

  • Text Code by authentication phone

The user will need to provide a cellular phone number and a code will be texted to the user.  The user will then need to use that code for entry.

  • Use Verification Code from app or token

This DOES NOT REQUIRE PERSONAL INFORMATION (No phone number required), all that is required a phone/tablet has the Microsoft Authenticator App installed from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.  Instead of a Popup message to Approve or Deny, a code is generated on the App and needs to be input.  The phone/tablet that has the Microsoft Authenticator App installed does not require an internet connection.  The code is system generated and is in sync with Microsoft Servers.
