Multi Factor Authentication

What Is This Service?

Middlebury protects your accounts by requiring multi-factor authentication for logins from outside of the Middlebury or Monterey campus networks. MFA works by requiring a secondary form of identification after a successful login. The secondary verification can come in the form of a phone call, text message, mobile app notification or code.

MFA protects your account if your password is compromised. When someone tries to log in with your stolen credentials, they are not able to provide the secondary verification. If you receive MFA notifications that you did not initiate, be careful not to allow any login and change your password immediately.

MFA provides the following benefits:

  • enhanced security for your account and your personal information
  • better protection for the systems and data you access
  • removal of the external sender warning on e-mail
  • more secure password recovery

Who Is Eligible For This Service?

Multi-factor authentication is required for all Middlebury accounts.
