MFA Multifactor Authentication (two-step verification) is used to access some of JU's services ans systems.

MFA, Multifactor authentication or two-step verification, which it is also called, means that as an extra security measure you use two verification steps. Entering the password as the first step, you then need to perform the next step, which may for example be to use an app on your phone to confirm the login.

MFA must be renewed after 7 days. If the MFA is not renewed, the apps/programs stop retrieving information from JU and notifications about new events stop coming.


If someone gets hold of your password, they will still not gain access your account in services that are protected by MFA, because you must perform the second step yourself when someone tries to log in to your account.

If you use a JU Mac you have to "enroll" the Mac to except it from MFA. Configure MFA first, and then you can enroll your JU-Mac following this MacOS manual Pdf, 711.7 kB, opens in new window..
