After logging in with your CaneID and password, you will be prompted for MFA verification. Check the box “Remember me for 30 days” before choosing a verification method. You will be remembered on that device and browser, and you will not need to confirm your identity with MFA verification again for 30 days.
If you are traveling outside the country, and/or don’t have access to an Internet connection and/or phone service, you can still use MFA. If you don’t have Internet, you can elect to receive an SMS text or a phone call to verify your authenticity. If you don’t have phone service, you can select the key symbol on the mobile app screen and generate a passcode. View our MFA traveling tips guide for more details.
As you may know, University of Miami Information Technology (UMIT) implemented an important security feature called Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) over the summer.
We understand that utilizing MFA may take some getting used to, but having a second factor (e.g., mobile phone or landline) in addition to your CaneID credentials is far more secure than your username and password alone. Since hackers don’t have physical access to these devices while attempting to compromise your account, your information is secure.
