2SV: How do I set up 2-Step Verification (2SV)?

Set up the verification method of your choice

All VIU employees will need to have 2SV set up on their computer account for remote access to Secure VIU resources by following one the Options below.

As of September 1, 2023 employees who are ON CAMPUS and either using VIU-Secure wifi, or are connected to a WIRED NETWORK will not be prompted for Secondary Verification. As long as you are logged in with your VIU account credentials, you will not have to enter another code to access secure resources.  

Option 1 - Use the Microsoft Authenticator App (Recommended)
Option 2 - Receive a text or phone call
Option 3 - Use a Hardware token
