Preventing others from accessing your CWRU account

Information Technology Services (ITS) is piloting a dual factor authentication mechanism.  
This means that login would use a password and another piece of information such as a code transmitted to your smartphone, a text message, or land-line.

While it takes a little extra effort to log in, the advantages are that 
  • others are prevented from accessing your account even if they have your password
  • passwords might not have to be changed as often as they are now.
