Are You Ready for MFA? Enrollment now open!
What is multifactor authentication (MFA)?
MultiFactor authentication (MFA) adds a layer of protection to the sign-in process. When accessing accounts or apps, users provide additional identity verification, such as scanning a fingerprint or entering a code received by phone.
Beginning June 2022, all ACPS users accessing email outside of the school network will be required to login using MFA. It is recommended that you pre-register with MFA now to avoid confusion and login issues when it is enforced.
Why is ACPS using MFA?
ACPS is a government entity that is being required by our cybersecurity insurer to implement MultiFactor Authentication. Most importantly, MFA is being used to protect district staff and data safe from hackers.
How does this impact me?
- Accessing email from outside a school network: When MFA is enforced you will be prompted to enter a security code that is sent to your personal cell phone either as a text or call.
- Accessing email from inside a school network: When MFA is enforced, the login experience will begin at the familiar Google login, but will redirect to a Microsoft login. You will enter your district email address and Google password which will then log you into your regular Google inbox.
- Easy to manage password resets: MFA enrollment will automatically enroll you with SSPR which will enable you to reset your password using your phone.
