Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security designed to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information. It requires you to verify your identity twice—once with your password and once with your phone or mobile device—before you can access sensitive information within select FSU systems. Two-factor authentication is easy to use, with step-by-step instructions each time you access a protected page or application. This extra security helps secure your accounts and keep your personal information safe.
