NetID Login Process Changing

The NetID login process at UW–Madison is adding a second step, called multi-factor authentication. The first steps for logging in will remain the same: You will enter your NetID and password. The additional step uses a smartphone or token (also called a fob) to verify your identity. The new verification process will be rolled out to all UW–Madison faculty and staff by school, college and division, with completion estimated in March, 2019. The Office of Cybersecurity will host a free panel discussion on multi-factor authentication on Thursday, Oct. 18, noon–1:30 p.m. in the Computer Sciences Building, Room 3139 ABC.
