The College has mandatory MFA (multi-factor authentication) to protect our systems and data. This will require the use of an authenticator app or an additional code to be entered at log-on in addition to your MCC Network Account User ID and password.
Strong passwords are essential, but they are not enough. Phishing attacks and data breaches put your account at risk. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides extra security for your MCC Network Account You may also see the terms two-step authentication (2FA),two-step verification, or login verification.
With MFA, anyone trying to access your account must provide two forms of identification:
• Something you know: such as your password.
• Something you have: such as a phone or a mobile app.
Microsoft Authenticator is a free multi-factor authentication app that MCC encourages you to use for MFA since it will give you ‘push’ notifications that you simply accept to confirm and proceed.
