The University has transitioned to two-factor authentication. The purpose of two-factor authentication is to protect your UNF account and personal information. It adds a step to the login process and after entering your UNF ID and password, it requires you to validate your identity by responding to a prompt using a second factor, like a mobile device. If your UNF password is stolen, your personal information can be viewed or altered and the contents of email, OneDrive, Canvas and many other applications are exposed. Two-factor authentication makes it harder for hackers to gain access to your information. Students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni must use Duo to confirm their identity on all the University's single sign-on applications. Learn more on the two-factor authentication webpage and review the FAQs.
