Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Also known as two factor authentication (2FA) is an additional security step to access your account.
You are prompted to set up Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) when you first log into your email at portal.office.com.
MFA exists to ensure that when you’re working off campus, you, and your Lincoln account, are still secure. If you have low mobile phone reception at home, we suggest using an authenticator app. If you only ever sign in on campus, then MFA will not come up for you.
