Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Required Setup | For Logging In



I lost/replaced the cell phone or tablet that I had already setup MFA on!  See these instructions >>

TSU Information Technology is dedicated to providing efficient, innovative technology services that provide a safe environment. In order to do so, we utilize an advanced method of protection known as Multi-Factor Authentication  (MFA). MFA keeps your university identity protected, safeguards your critical TSU data. If your password credentials are compromised by a hacker it provides another layer of protection to prevent unauthorized access.

How MFA Will Work Each Time You Login  

Essentially MFA is an authentication process that requires you to enter 2 factors in order to login to TSU accounts.

  1. First, you'll enter your MyTSU username and password.
  2. Next, you will receive a notification from Azure on your cell phone to accept or deny the authentication attempted. Once you click approve, you are successfully logged into your account.

Every time you have to access a TSU system, you'll have to do those same 2 steps.
