Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Mutli-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security for your Olivet account.  It makes your password easier to manage and adds extra security by requiring a second factor when logging in from an unknow device or if your account is being attacked.  All Olivet users will be required to configure MFA the first two months of 2021.
