Author: Office of the Provost

VCU 2Factor

In order to safeguard our information from cyber adversaries, the university is integrating VCU 2Factor Authentication to its Central Authentication Service for all online applications, including email and Blackboard. 

All faculty and staff, including students workers are expected to use VCU 2Factor authentication system. 

VCU 2Factor Authentication helps to drastically reduce the usefulness of stolen usernames and passwords, as it relies on one or more other factors in proving one’s identity in addition to the username and password.
