Activation of multifactor authentication for all employees

To protect users at the University from so-called phishing, multi-factor authentication has recently been introduced. What this means is that each time you log in to the University’s system, you will be requested to enter additional information to confirm your identity.

The Office of IT and Digital Infrastructure works continuously and systematically to monitor and strengthen the security of the University's IT infrastructure. It has noticed a sharp increase in attempts to obtain information about user accounts through so-called phishing. To make this more difficult and protect university users, a decision has been made to introduce, at short notice, mandatory registration of multi-factor authentication (MFA) for everyone at Dalarna University.

Multi-factor authentication, also known as two-step verification, means that you will receive a request to enter additional information when you go to log in. In addition to entering your username and password, you will need to prove who you are/confirm your identity with an additional so-called factor. This factor can be an application in your phone or a code sent to you as a text message. Multi-factor authentication will not be requested every time you log in, only when the system detects that something has changed: for example, you are logging in from a new location or on a new device.
