Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

What is Multi-factor Authentication?

Southeast Missouri State University has added multi-factor authentication to apply to Southeast accounts. This will provide additional security by requiring both something you know (like your username and password) as well as something you have (like your cell phone or landline phone) whenever you sign into this system. If you are on a device you trust, you can choose to trust the device for up to 60 days before you are required to re-authenticate using MFA.

Why use Multi-factor Authentication?

It is important to use multi-factor authentication in order to protect your Southeast ID information, and to ensure that no one else can access your account. MFA is required in some circumstances, and is an optional security mechanism for others.

Go to the SEMO Multi-factor Authentication page and make sure your MFA settings are up to date.
