Two Factor Authentication
The university has implemented a two-factor authentication system to provide an additional level of security when using sensitive online services. This system uses a tool called Toopher, which provides a user-friendly and secure two-factor authentication solution. With two-factor authentication, the regular UT EID login process will be enhanced with an additional authentication step.
- Enhances the security of your personal information held within university systems (for example, paycheck bank routing information) by combating password fraud.
- Compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices, eliminating the need for a separate one-time-password key fob or other device.
- Provides the ability to make two-factor authentication “invisible” by automating authentication when you are in a trusted location, such as your office or home.
The two-factor authentication service is available at no cost to faculty and staff.
