More applications secured with MFA within TU/e

As announced in earlier communication about the rollout of multi-factor authentication (MFA) within TU/e last December 2021, several applications will be secured with MFA during this calendar year, following the example of Office365.

MFA means adding an additional verification step to ensure you are who you say you are.

Which applications will switch to MFA?

Starting in May, more applications will also be secured with MFA such as:

- Osiris

- Canvas

- Afas (TU/e InSite)

What will I notice?

As of December 16, 2021, you already periodically confirm your identity on all your devices (cell phone, laptop, tablet) for O365 applications through the Microsoft Authenticator app or a token.

From the beginning of May, to access the aforementioned applications, you will need to authenticate in the same way. The only thing that will change is the login screen that appears. This will look like this from May onwards.
