Keeping your information safe
Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is activated for all students to help keep your student information secure by strengthening our defences against increasing malicious cyber-attacks.
MFA provides extra security when logging into Griffith applications. You already sign in using your Griffith username and password. MFA adds a second form of identification to confirm that it is you logging in, such as a passcode sent to your computer or mobile device.
Welcome to MFA
If you do not have access to YouTube, view the welcome video at Microsoft MFA for students.
Have you registered a second device?
If you have not already registered an additional device for MFA, now is the time! It is important to do this so that you can still access all your accounts and applications, even those times when you are unable to use your primary device.
How to use MFA without your primary device is the number one query that our IT Service Centre staff receive regarding MFA for students. So to ensure you are not caught out set up your second device as soon as possible.

If you do not have access to YouTube, instructions are available from Microsoft MFA Stream.
I do not have a phone
If you do not want to use a phone as your primary authenticating device, you can use a computer as your primary device, or purchase a Security Key from mi.token (see link below).
What is a Security Key
A Security Key is a small key which plugs into your computer and, along with your password, is used to authenticate your identity.
If you need a Security Key and are experiencing financial hardship please contact email@example.com to apply for financial assistance.
