How do I prepare for Multi-Factor Authentication?

The following tips will help ensure that your Multi-Factor Authentication setup goes smoothly.

Tip #1: Install the Microsoft Authenticator app on your smartphone

Visit our Microsoft Authenticator app wiki page for setup instructions.

Tip #2: Install the Microsoft Outlook app on your mobile device(s)

Consider installing the official Microsoft Outlook app on your smartphone and tablet. The Outlook mobile app includes built-in support for Multi-Factor Authentication. It also provides remote access to Middlebury’s directory, which is particularly handy when you are on the road and need to look up someone’s contact information.



Can I use Multi-Factor Authentication without a Smartphone?

YES! You can still use Multi-Factor Authentication even without a smartphone. If you have a cell phone, you can opt to receive texts (no need to reply - just read the codes). If you cannot receive texts, you can opt to receive a voice call (on your cell phone or landline). If none of these options apply, please contact Middlebury Information Security for help getting setup.

How do I sign up for Multi-Factor Authentication?

If you are interested in taking advantage of Multi-Factor Authentication, simply submit the request here to let ITS know that you would like Multi-Factor Authentication enabled for your account. You will receive a followup email containing setup instructions.
