MFA will soon be mandatory for all faculty, staff and students. We will start enforcing MFA for faculty and staff on or about December 6th. If MFA is enforced and you don’t have multifactor methods enabled in advance you will have to do it before moving ahead with your sign-in. Doing it in advance will help you log in when MFA is enforced for your account.
CUNY has a website that discusses MFA for M365, which includes an FAQ.
Please follow the instructions below to set up MFA. You will be prompted to do this at login within the next few days, but you can set it up in advance of the prompt.
Log into Office 365 from the Quick Links drop-down using your CUNY login credentials, or go to “https://office.com” from your browser, and log in with your CUNY Login credentials to Micrsoft 365.
In the upper right corner, click on your name.
A drop-down will appear—select View Account.
On the My Account page, look for the section called Security Info. Select Update Info.
On the Security Info page, select +Add Sign in Method.
The add method screen will appear and prompt you to choose a method. The prompts for each method will be straightforward. We recommend using the Authenticator App as your primary method.
After you have added a few methods, you will want to ensure that the “Default sign-in method” listed is the one you prefer. You will still be offered all methods when entering your sign-in verification.
When you are done, close the window to exit.
The BCTC help desk can assist, if you have any questions.
