Multi-Factor Authentication


ITS has implemented security measures to protect your personal information, your intellectual property, and LUC's data. MFA protects you even if your Loyola password becomes compromised. Using MFA means that users will download the Microsoft Authenticator application on their mobile device, or get a phone call or a text to securely sign-in to online resources. Your LUC UVID and password plus one of the authentication methods is used to verify your identity and protect the community from data breaches.


Using MFA will decrease the probability that a hacker can impersonate you to gain access to computers, accounts, and other online resources.

Getting Started with MFA

See MFA: Getting Started for an overview of the enrollment process.

See MFA: Detailed Instructions for step-by-step visual instructions.

As a backup, we ask that you set up more than one MFA method using the MFA preferences page. If you're unable to access one device, a backup method will allow you to continue accessing your account.

Have an issue or concern? Contact the ITS Service Desk by logging an incident, via email at ITSServiceDesk@luc.edu, or via phone at 773-508-4487.
