Do the Two-Step: Enable MFA with Duo Today

About MFA @ UCSB

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) makes it much harder for hackers to access your UC Santa Barbara information and accounts. Even if someone has stolen your passphrase, they will need a "second factor" - in most cases a temporary numeric code, to access your account. UCSB has partnered with Duo Security, a system that makes it easy for you to enable MFA.
