How do I set up two factor authentication?

In order to make use of two factor authentication, you must register or "pair" your mobile phone with the university.

Once your mobile device is paired, when you attempt to access a secure system which requires two factor authentication, a separate message will be sent to your mobile device which must be confirmed on your mobile device.

Click here to pair your mobile device. (You will need your mobile device handy to complete this process.)

What if I don't have a mobile phone?
