Multi-factor authentication (also MFA, 2FA, or two-factor authentication, strong authentication) adds an extra layer of security to users' accounts, drastically reducing the chances of sensitive information being stolen.
All accounts at UC require MFA. Upon logging in, if you do not already have a second factor of authentication setup, you will be prompted to set up an additional factor.

OneLogin Protect is the recommended authentication factor for University of the Cumberlands users.
OneLogin Protect for Google/iOS is a mobile authenticator app that provides a one-time-password (OTP) as a second authentication factor with the click of a button. This process does require having a modern smartphone such as an iPhone or Android phone.
