Wayne State has partnered with Duo Security to offer Two-factor Authentication (2FA) to employees and faculty, which adds a second layer of security to your Wayne State accounts. Two-factor Authentication verifies your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) and prevents anyone but you from logging in to your account, even if they know your password.
