Increased security for logging into Canvas

Starting Monday 24 June, MFA (multi-factor authentication) will be required to log into Canvas. This is a security-enhancing measure to protect our accounts at Jönköping University (JU). MFA is already used for logging in to, for example, Microsoft365 when using a private computer. Now it will be extended and apply to all logins to Canvas, regardless of equipment.

MFA is a two-step verification that involves logging in with your username and password, plus another step to verify that you're you. It can be, for example, via a special app on your phone.

If you have not configured MFA for your account, we recommend that you do so as soon as possible, manuals are available on the Helpdesk web. If you encounter problems, please contact the IT helpdesk.
