Hi Kristin

Yes, the University uses Duo to multifactor into Office365.   It made a huge difference when that was implemented because that ended the hacking of student email accounts, because they tend to use their email account for signing up for outside website accounts with the same password (and then that website is breached).

Hi all -

I have a question for anyone who can help me in this group.  Please feel free to reply directly to me.  Do you force students/faculty/staff to use Multi Factor Authentication to access things like webmail or Canvas?

Thanks in advance for any information/advice/recommendations!
