Two Factor Authentication protects the entire campus community by prompting for a second factor of authentication. ITS highly recommends enabling Two Factor Authentication to your BGSU email account, which works the same way as the MyBGSU portal does now. Even if a person accidently gives away their credentials, without the authentication code from Duo to a device in the user's physical possession, a hacker would be unable to gain access personal information either through email or the MyBGSU portal. This includes personal direct deposit information, W-2 information, refund check information, bank account information, HSA information, etc.

Below you will find articles on how to enable Two Factor for email as well as other FAQs.
