Multi-Factor Authentication coming to more services

You may remember that the University recently upgraded Office 365 to use Multifactor Authentication (MFA) as part of a drive to improve cyber security.

In the New Year, MFA will be expanded to protect more services like the MyGlasgow Portal, Moodle, and the UofG Helpdesk.

This means that the way you log-in to these services will change.

What’s changing?

The login page will look different, and rather than use your GUID and password, you will need to use your University email address and password in the same way as you currently login to Office 365.

This will allow you to move seamlessly between services and login less frequently, because a login on one service will give you access to others, for example, if you have logged in recently to check email, you will be able to access MyGlasgow portal without entering your password again.

As ever, thank you for your support, and we will be in touch with more details nearer the time.
