Since UF adopted multi-factor authentication (MFA), the number of compromised GatorLink accounts has decreased by 99.7%. Using the multi-factor authentication app provides additional protection to the university’s systems and services. This means your personal information as well as your research files, proposals, and all university data, is better secured.
Tips to enhance your MFA experience:
1. Add a second device to your MFA account, in case your primary device is lost or stolen. UFIT created a short video explaining how to add a device.
2. Use a passcode to authenticate even without an internet connection or cell service. Open the Duo app, then tap the University of Florida drop-down tab on the home screen. Type in the six-digit code provided when logging into UF services.
3. Check the “Remember Me” option to not be prompted to authenticate for 10 hours, as long as you’re using the same browser on the same device.
