Microsoft is moving to a more secure method of authentication that changes “Push” notifications. The new process for logging into Microsoft 365 gives you an auto-generated number to type into your device. Microsoft doesn’t have an exact switchover date, but the purpose of this project is to get campus ready before Microsoft acts. Pilot groups are currently testing the system.

(“Number matching” means that when users go through an MFA Authentication, they see a number that they must enter in the Authenticator app to complete the authentication process. This mechanism is already used for passwordless authentication.)


Projected Completion Date: February 28, 2023
