About 7,000 employees on all WVU campuses are actively using two-factor authentication, well ahead of the April 27 deadline for everyone to join this critical security initiative.
Two-factor authentication is a second layer of security besides your password. It requires you to confirm your identity with two things – something you KNOW and something you HAVE. Essentially, it’s no different than a physical key to a door: If you want access to something WVU considers important, you have to prove it’s you to gain that access. No group of employees is exempt.
