What is happening? Opt-in, two-factor authentication (2FA) is being enabled for campus enterprise systems. Users who have opted-in to 2FA protection for their Connect OWA or Office 365 account will now receive a 2FA prompt when they log in to Quest, Workday, LEARN, Unit4, or Concur. 

When is this happening? After 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 24. 

What do users need to do? No action is required. 

What is the impact? 

  • On the cut-over date, users who have opted-in to 2FA protection will be challenged when they log in to Connect OWA, Office 365, Quest, Workday, LEARN, Unit4, or Concur. 

  • Users who want to opt-in to protect their accounts with 2FA can enrol by visiting https://uwaterloo.ca/2fa and clicking the “Get started now” button.
