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 your phone, 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. Note: Users of Loyola Secure Access (LSA) will still need to complete step 1 in the MFA: Detailed Instructions to fulfill their MFA enrollment.


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