As previously announced, beginning Monday, Sept. 12, 2016, multi-factor authentication will be added to the Human Resources Employee Self Service (ESS) system. BuckeyePass will provide a second layer of security by requiring not only a username and password but also a notification or numerical code that is sent to the user. You may already be using multi-factor authentication to log in to other accounts at your bank, email or social media sites.
For those desiring additional guidance in understanding the concepts of multi-factor authentication or enrolling devices in BuckeyePass, there are two video tutorials available on BuckeyeLearn that cover these issues in detail.
