Two-Factor Authentication for Pilot Required January 6

Beginning January 6th, 2020, two-factor authentication will become mandatory for all faculty and staff when accessing Pilot from off campus, wireless, or VPN connections. When logging into Pilot via pilot.wright.edu, you will be prompted with the same two-factor authentication screen you receive when accessing services such as WINGS, Office 365, and ServiceNow.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security that requires not only a username and password, but also authenticates with a device in your possession (cell/smart phone, key fob, landline phone).

Benefits of Two-Factor Authentication

  • Increased online security
  • Increased security for your Wright State accounts

What Actions Do I Take Now?

CaTS began requiring two-factor authentication via Duo mobile for all faculty, staff, and delegated users on June 3, 2019. You do not need to take any action if you have already enrolled in this service.

What Differences Will I Notice?

The only difference you will notice is the two-factor authentication prompt when logging into Pilot at pilot.wright.edu with your Campus 'w' username and password. If you have the 'Remember Me' box checcked on the workstation and browser you're attempting to access Pilot on, you won't need to perform Duo two-factor authentication until this expires.
