How to set up MFA for Brightspace
From Arzu Sahin on 16-Mar-2021, 13:32 GMT+1
As of Monday 22 March 2021, 07:30h all staff members, including instructors, student-assistants, support staff, and guest lecturers will need to log into Brightspace with a second authentication method. Please follow the instructions on the screen while logging in.
Please note: This is a new authentication method and it is different from the current method used for Microsoft applications like MS Teams. We strongly advise you to set your preferences now in account services, so you do not experience any login issues on Monday.
For more information please see our manuals on Multi-Factor Authentication in Dutch or in English.
Good to know:
- Multi factor authentication in Brightspace is required for all staff and guests. For students nothing changes. A username and password remains sufficient for them.
- If you need assistance you can contact the ISSC helpdesk: https://helpdesk.universiteitleiden.nl/tas/public/ssp/.
