Reminder Students Enroll in Two-Factor Authentication

Important Reminder from Penn State’s Office of Information Security (OIS)

Thursday, April 9, 2020

Students who have not enrolled in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), the University’s identity-verification system that protects accounts from cyberattacks, are encouraged to do so immediately for safe, secure access to Penn State sites and services. 

The effects of account compromise can be particularly harmful for students. Attackers who gain access to student accounts could drop classes, alter enrollment and tuition, and attempt to acquire important financial information.
