For added security on the BW campus network, all BW email accounts REQUIRE Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).


What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?



You have probably used MFA when accessing Google, PayPal, or other online transaction sites. An SMS text with an access code is sent to your mobile phone.

For BW's MFA process, you can select the SMS text option or use the Microsoft “Authenticator App” to verify your identity. (The text message option is recommended.)
