Accounts & Access: Enhanced account security

Two-factor authentication (TFA) provides additional University account security for participating students, faculty, and staff. 

The two-factor name describes the addition of a second layer of authentication applied to your account as described below.

  • First factor: Use your CedarNet username and password to log in to your University accounts (e.g., CedarInfo, email, Moodle).
  • Second factor: Confirm your identity from a landline or cell phone, tablet, or token (e.g., through a mobile app, call, text message or generated code).
