UW Oshkosh Email Update:

Multi-Factor Authentication is two-step verification process that each UWO student must use when accessing their Outlook email account. This authentication process is to better secure your email, especially when accessing sensitive information. Because passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised, this additional security step helps to make your account more difficult for others to access.

The UW Oshkosh IT Department has step-by-step instructions as to how to set this up on their website here.
