Cyber Security – Multi-Factor Authentication Prompts

Stetson University uses Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) which reduces security risks associated with phishing and other threats. Multi-factor authentication makes hacking a user account more difficult because MFA adds something you have (a phone) as your second factor of authentication. If you are using MFA on your accounts and are not using a computer, do not approve MFA prompts. Doing so could approve access to a hacker who may have guessed or stolen your password. To learn more about MFA, watch the video below.

If you ever receive a suspicious MFA prompt on your phone and have a question, please contact I.T. at
