NetID+ Requirement Deadline Approaching

University Information Technology Services
April 2, 2018

As a reminder, staff, faculty, and DCCs will need to use NetID+, the University's two-step authentication service, for logins by:

  • Tuesday, April 3, for staff and DCCs
  • Tuesday, April 10, for faculty

This change will help protect your private information and the University against cybersecurity threats.

What does this mean?

Faculty, staff, and DCCs will be prompted for two-step (NetID+) authentication when they log in to UA web-based systems and services secured behind UA WebAuth from on campus as well as working remotely or traveling.

NetID+ is already required to access some services including UAConnect365 employee email, direct deposit information in UAccess Employee, and UA's VPN (virtual private network). Effective April 2018, you will be prompted for two-step credentials when you log in to a UA system or service, such as UAccess, Box, etc.

If you are not enrolled in NetID+, you will not be able to log in to UA systems after the deadline for your affiliation type (see above). Enroll now at netid-plus.arizona.edu to be ready for the requirement.

More information about the NetID+ requirement for campus is at it.arizona.edu/netid-plus.

What is two-step authentication?

Two-step authentication (also called two-factor authentication) is increasingly popular for online accounts, including banks and email services. NetID+ adds another layer of security when you log in to your UA accounts by requiring, first, your UA NetID password, and next, a second security method to confirm your identity.

There are easy and flexible options for the second security method including:

  • Calling a cell phone
  • Texting a code
  • Using the DUO app
  • Calling a landline
  • Using a hardware token

Enroll in more than one method to ensure you have a backup. Learn more about enrollment options at netid-plus.arizona.edu/pages/documentation.

Simplify Your Login

To reduce the number of times you will be prompted for NetID+, select the "Remember this device for 30 days" feature after you enter your NetID and password. This will save your authentication information for 30 days in the browser you used to log in.
