MFA for Students

Starting in Spring 2018, all students must enroll in the UCLA Logon multi-factor authentication (MFA) program.

What is Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)?

MFA is a security enhancement that requires two forms of verification when using your UCLA Logon and adds critical protection for your sign-on credentials. If one factor is compromised, such as a password, the attacker will still need the other factor—for example, a smartphone—in order to gain access to the system. This reduces the risk of unauthorized users gaining access to user information or UCLA resources. MFA is being deployed for UCLA Logon in response to a dramatic rise in the scope and sophistication of cyberattacks that are targeting our community. 

This page will be continually updated with more information and resources starting on March 12, 2018. For instructions on how to enroll now, please visit:
