Multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides an extra layer of protection to make sure it's really you when you log into UQ services and systems.

MFA requires two separate factors to identify you and allow access to your account:

  1. Something you ‘know’ (your username and password).
  2. Something you ‘have’ (e.g. a code sent to your mobile phone).

This additional verification step helps to keep your UQ account protected from unauthorised access if one of these factors is compromised. UQ's MFA service is provided by Duo Security.
