Available Now: Two-Factor Authentication for Students!

Tuesday, December 15, 2020

CaTS now offers a two-factor authentication service to increase security for Wright State student accounts!

As of January 19, 2021, Wright State students now have the option to sign up for two-factor authentication through DUO Mobile. If you choose to sign up for this service, you will be prompted to confirm your login by receiving a Duo Mobile ‘push’ to your smart phone when accessing services like WINGS, Office 365, ServiceNow, and more. To sign up, visit https://wright.edu/2fa.

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 (smart phone). View an instructional video for enrolling your device here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMj89Ulpx6c.

Benefits of Two-Factor Authentication

  • Provides increased online security.
  • Provides increased security for your Wright State accounts.

Over the past year, the Help Desk has reset the accounts of 165 Wright State users due to compromised accounts. If someone else gains access to your account, they now have access to all of your Wright State student information, can send emails on your behalf, and potentially gain access to other external, non-Wright State accounts that may be tied to your Wright State email address.

For more information regarding two-factor authentication, visit https://www.wright.edu/information-technology/services/two-factor-authentication. If you have questions about signing up for this service, call the CaTS Help Desk at 937-775-4827, or email helpdesk@wright.edu.
