How do I use Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) with my AU account?

  • You will need to set up an authenticator app on your smart phone while still on campus ( How do I set up MFA on a smartphone? )
  • When logging in to a service which requires Multi Factor Authentication (MFA), you will be prompted to enter a one time password generated by the authentication app on your smart phone:
    • Open the Microsoft Authenticator app on your phone
    • Type the six digit PAU password from the app on your phone into the CAU/OTP field on the service you are trying to access.
