About Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Heads up! The most secure MFA method is the Microsoft Authenticator App.
How It Works
Multi-factor combines something you know (UARK email and password) with something you have (a trusted device, like a phone).
- Log into a UARK online service like Outlook, Blackboard Learn or UAConnect.
- Receive a notification on your smartphone.
- Verify access to your UARK account.
Multi-factor authentication is required for accessing all UARK accounts starting at the time the account is created. This requirement is designed to minimize the potential security exposure to University of Arkansas from damages which may result from unauthorized use of university resources.
