Multi-factor authentication for Workday will be required on Weds., Nov. 8

Beginning on Wednesday, November 8, the university will require users to set up multi-factor authentication for logging into Workday from off campus.

  • If you have not already set up a secondary authentication method, you will be prompted to set up one of three options the next time you log into Workday:

    • SMS authentication

    • Voice call authentication (note: It is recommended that you do not use your work desk phone number)

    • Okta Verify mobile application, available for iOS and Android devices

  • If you have already logged into Workday from off campus, you should have already setup your secondary authentication and should not be prompted for any additional information.

  • Off-campus users may be prompted to re-authenticate up to once a week per device.

Multi-factor authentication helps protect your account by requiring a second form of authentication, such as a code sent to your mobile phone, when signing in.

If you need assistance or need to change your secondary authentication information, please contact the IT Help Desk. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve the computer security environment at UNLV.
