What is multi-factor authentication (MFA)?
MFA is a two step process for authenticating a user when they try to login to an online service. Have you ever noticed a website sending you a text message and then asking you to enter a code before logging in? This is one example of MFA.
How does MFA help protect my account?
Even if someone has your password, they will not be able to login to your account without properly verifying using the second method. While it may seem like an inconvenience, adding this extra layer of protection is highly recommended and does not change much in your use of VEYM services. For VEYM, we recommend using the Microsoft Authenticator app, which will give you a six digit code for you to enter or push notification for you to approve or deny each login attempt.
How to enable MFA
Is this recommended or required?
MFA is required for all admins in the VEYM IT Team. The IT Team also constantly monitors cyber attacks to our accounts. We highly recommend all members to enable MFA, especially those in BCHTU.
