Multi-Factor Authentication


Information Technology Services now offers Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) services to protect your LUC account by using your LUC UVID and password plus one additional authentication method to verify your identity.  MFA will be enabled for several LUC applications.  Currently, MFA is enabled for Loyola Secure Access (LSA) and Office 365 (O365).


MFA protects you even if your Loyola password becomes compromised.  MFA helps to keep your personal data and Loyola's systems safe. As threats, technology, and best practices continually change, MFA will be used across many university-applications.
