Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication adds another layer of security when logging in to MSU systems and is required for most university accounts. The first factor required to log in is something you know, i.e. your NetID/NetPassword. The additional factor is something you have, typically your smartphone or tablet. Therefore, even if someone is able to get your NetID/NetPassword, they should not be able to log in to your account because they do not have your other factor.
