Important information about multi-factor authentication and OneDrive

Beginning mid-2020, if you are working off-campus, you will be prompted to authenticate – to prove you are who you say you are – using our MFA application Duo before you are able to access any Microsoft Office 365 application including OneDrive. Office 365 applications are available to download for free on up to 5 PCs, Macs or mobile devices to current faculty, staff and students. OIT recommends that you download OneDrive to your home and mobile devices if you plan on accessing your files away from campus. 

Additional steps you can take now to prepare for MFA implementation with O365 and OneDrive:

  • Install the Duo app on your preferred device (we highly recommend doing this on your smartphone). Printable pdf instructions for installing and registering for Duo are available. For a quick look into Duo, view this short video.
  • Register for Duo from your laptop or desktop computer.
  • If you are a VPN or VDI user and have already installed and registered for Duo, you do not need to register again.

Stay Secure

OneDrive is configured for HIPAA compliance, so files are all private by default. However, sharing for viewing and editing is easy to do. Learn how to stay secure while sharing files with OneDrive.
