Two-Factor Authentication

Introduction

When you use your Miami UniqueID and MUnet password to log in to certain Miami services or applications, you will be prompted to enter a six-digit single-use verification code or approve via a push notification to a mobile device. The Two-Factor code changes with every log-in and can be used only one time.

Two-Factor Authentication was chosen because it strikes a good balance between security and complexity. The technology is well-understood, certified, and supportable. We believe the security benefits gained for the Miami community outweigh the added complexity.
