To better protect University data and to ensure compliance with State of Florida access control polices, the University has begun implementing stricter password policies.
It is mandatory for employees with access to sensitive data (through the use of their FAUNet ID) have to sign up for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), which will let you keep the same password for 365 days.
MFA is a technology that provides a second method of authenticating you when logging into services with sensitive information. You will be able to choose from a few methods to accomplish this.
Different ways you can authenticate your login attempt includes:- Push notifications (on your smartphone only)
The following devices can be enrolled with Duo:
- Android ( Download the Duo app from the Google Play Store )
- iPhone or iPad ( Download the Duo app from the Apple App Store )
- Other Cell Phones (using a text message or phone call)
- Land Lines (using a phone call)
- Key FOB* (using a number key)
*If you do not have access to a smartphone, we recommend that you request a hardware key fob (FOB) by submitting a help desk request . FOBs may be picked up by appointment from the Help Desk in CM22 on the Boca Campus, SR291 on the Jupiter Campus, or LA303 on the Davie Campus.
Keep in mind that you will need your registered device near you at any time you would wish to log in to self-service, workday, VPN, or any other service that provides sensitive information.
