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.
