OCC Okta Multifactor authentication (MFA) is an additional step of verifying your
identity when logging into an application or website. This authentication combines
the use of a username and password (like you currently use) with an additional factor
such as a push notification, text message or voice call.
You will only be required to verify your identity when you are not connected to an
OCC network (such as at home or an off-campus coffee shop). If you are in the campus
library using an OCC computer, you will not need to verify anything.
All you need to do is visit OCC Okta Security in a computer web browser and log in with your OCC username and password. From there,
you'll get step-by-step instructions on how to set everything up. You can also follow
our detailed instructions.
When logging in to a device not connected to the OCC network once your MFA is set
up, you will be required to verify your identity by either responding to a push notification
from the Okta app, or entering a security code sent to you via text or phone call.
OCC strongly recommends using the Okta smartphone app, available for both iPhone and
Android, for the most secure option. It's also the quickest!
