The automatic enrollment process has begun for appointed faculty. For those who have not self-enrolled, you will be automatically enrolled between May 15 and June 15, 2022.
Am I required to enroll?
UTORMFA verifies your identity using a second factor, like a mobile device or hardware token, to ensure that only you can login.
Is it easy to use?
Self-enroll in minutes. Verify your identity with two clicks. That’s it.
What if I’m travelling? Do I need access to Wi-Fi?
No. If you bring your phone with you, UTORMFA can automatically generate a passcode if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi or data.
What if I lose my phone?
UTORMFA offers a bypass code service that enables you to login if your mobile device or hardware token is lost, broken or unavailable.
Am I required to enroll?
Yes, UTORMFA is a security requirement for all U of T community members. Appointed faculty members who have not self-enrolled by May 15, 2022 will be automatically enrolled between May 15 and June 15.
Will not enrolling in UTROMFA affect my access to University systems?
Once the automatic-enrollment process takes effect, you will need UTORMFA to access University systems. To ensure that your access to University systems is not interrupted, please enroll in UTORMFA as soon as possible.
The majority of U of T appointed staff have already enrolled in UTORMFA and have not faced issues.
