Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), sometimes referred to as 2-Step Verification (2SV) is required for access to various EMU services. MFA accompanies your password in the authentication process, adding a second method of verification to make sure only you can sign in with your username. With MFA enabled, even if someone has your password, they can't get in because they don't have access to your "second step".
