Remember your UCLA Logon ID MFA device for 12 hours

You can call it MFA "Remember Me" for short. It will save you time and energy when using your UCLA Logon ID.

On April 18, 2018 UCLA will be launching a new "Remember me" feature for UCLA Single Sign-On. With this feature enabled for an application a user will no longer be prompted for MFA on their device for 12 hours after successfully authenticating once.

How It Works:

When prompted for MFA after logging in with your UCLA Logon ID and password, you may check a box labled “Remember me for 12 hours.” If you then authenticate successfully, you will no longer be prompted to authenticate with MFA on that device for 12 hours.
