Need Multifactor Authentication Help? We Are Here for You!

Multifactor authentication provides a powerful defense against increasing threats from phishing scams, malicious software, and compromised passwords. These threats pose an immediate risk to your privacy and the security of University data.

To help protect you and safeguard your privacy, on May 14 the University will add multifactor authentication to all services that leverage the University’s single sign-on service, Pitt Passport. Registration is required. If you don’t register before May 14, you will be taken to the registration page before you can access University services on that day. 

Support specialists are available on the Pittsburgh campus to help you register your device for multifactor authentication, use it to log in to University services, or answer any questions you might have. Check the schedule below for a location near you.
