Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Overview

Two-factor authentication, provided by Duo Security, creates an additional layer of security for many Tufts websites and online services. 

When you log into a service that uses 2FA, you will need to enter your password and then confirm your login request using a mobile device or landline phone. This step helps to prevent unauthorized access to your account, even if someone has obtained your username and password.
