Setting up Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

  • In order to allow you to access GMIT resources from outside the institute you must sign up for MFA.
  • MFA requires two verification methods for your account (password and a physical device such as a mobile phone) in order to login remotely.
  • The first time you login you will be asked to provide contact details (mobile or landline telephone number). This device will be used to prove your identity when you access resources (OneDrive, Learnonline, Email, Student Website) from outside GMIT.
  • This process only needs to be completed once and should be familiar to anyone with a Gmail or Hotmail account. It is outlined step by step HERE.
  • We recommend using the Microsoft Authenticator App as your chosen method of authentication, information on how to do so is available HERE
  • When you next access GMIT resources while outside the institute you will receive a text or phone call to the number provided, this information along with your password will be required to proceed.
  • After you have been signed up for MFA you will notice no difference when logging in to GMIT resources within the Institute (PC, Learnonline, Email, WiFi).

If you no longer have access to your device and wish to have your MFA details wiped so that you can setup with a new number please present to the ITHelpdesk with your student card or email your request to attaching photographic ID.
