Secure your account with mult-factor authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a two-step authentication process that increases security for your SIU credentials and accounts. MFA may seem unfamiliar, but MFA is an industry standard that is already used to protect financial, medical, and other important accounts. For example, more and more banks require credentials like a username and password to initiate the sign-in process, and then send a code via cell phone or email that must be entered to gain access to the account. OIT has put in the same protections at SIU.
