Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), also referred to as two-factor authentication (2FA), is a set of technologies to ensure a sensitive service can trust a new connection that comes from the rightful holder of the account. As the University of Toronto is adapting to this technological age for its core community members (all UofT staff, faculty, researchers, librarians, and some high-risk or security keen students), the university is adopting a MFA service called Duo.
