Tech Tip | Important Security Announcement: Two-Factor Authentication coming to Miami in May
Due to past incidents where grades were changed and direct deposit information was compromised, Miami is implementing Two-Factor Authentication around these resources to reduce the potential of security breaches and theft. This protection will begin on Sunday, May 4.
How does Two-Factor Authentication work?
When you use your Miami UniqueID and password to log in to certain Miami services or applications, you will be prompted to enter a second factor: a six-digit single-use verification code. The code changes with every login and can be used only one time. A code can be delivered to you through any of the following methods:
- a set of printed codes
- a smartphone app (Google Authenticator)
- text or voice message
You can also "trust" a browser so that you are not prompted again to enter your code for a period of 30 days.
When and where will Two-Factor be used?
Miami will begin using Two-Factor in the following situations:
- (Beginning May 4)Accessing certain forms needed for tax purposes (W2, 1098T, etc.)
- (Beginning May 4) Changing direct deposit information (new account or bank, etc.)
- (Beginning May 21.) Submitting midterm and final grades to Banner via BannerWeb or the Niihka Send Grades to Banner option. Changes made to grades in the Photo Roster will also be protected by Two-Factor Authentication.
