Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds a second level of verification when you log into designated Tufts websites and online services. This added layer of security is provided by Duo Security. [Effective July 1, 2018, Tufts requires 2FA for all students, faculty, staff, and affiliates.]

Features

  • Decreased risk of account compromises and identity theft
  • Get alerted if your password is stolen as soon as someone tries to log in
  • Use your smartphone, cell phone, tablet, or landline phone to confirm your login requests (no data plan needed)
