UVic Multi-Factor Authentication (UVic MFA) is now available

18 October, 2021

UVic Multi-Factor Authentication (UVic MFA) is a new security feature to protect accounts now available for all students, staff and faculty. Sign up today at uvic.ca/mfa!

UVic MFA strengthens account security by requiring a second factor when you login to UVic online services. The first factor we use is a passphrase – something you know. The second factor is something you have – such as a device (e.g. phone or tablet) in your possession. Once you enable UVic MFA for your NetLink ID, you will be prompted for additional verification on your registered device when you login to online services protected by UVic MFA. This will provide additional security to protect your account and personal information from unauthorized access.
