Multifactor Authentication (MFA-DUO)

Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is an additional security measure to protect your intellectual property, personal information, and Yale's data. MFA adds a step to the log-in process used to access some of Yale's resources by requiring an individual, after entering their NetID and password, to prove their identity by responding to a prompt on a mobile device, landline, tablet or token.
