What is dual factor authentication?

Dual factor gives you a second level of security when you log in to websites authenticated through the UWS Login Portal, this means you'll provide us with 2 things: 

  1. Something you know: your username and password.
  2. Something you have: your phone, tablet, computer, etc. (this can be through an e-mail, text, or app) and the system will provide you with a one time passcode (OTP) to prove that it is you logging in.
