When you set up 2-factor authentication, you’re adding an extra layer of security to your Go365 account. This helps us verify that it’s you when you sign in on a new device, such as a mobile device or a public computer. This extra step helps make sure that only you can access your account.
Each time you sign in from a device we don’t recognize, we’ll send you a confirmation code to enter during sign-in along with your username and password.
This is how we verify you are really you.
- Sign in to Go365
You’ll sign in to your Go365 account using your current username and password as you normally would.
- Choose how you want to get your code
Next, you’ll choose how you want to set up 2-factor authentication. You can get your confirmation code by email or text message.
- Enter your code
We’ll send a 1-time code to the method you choose, so be sure to check your email or phone. This code will help us secure your account and confirm that it’s you signing in on your device. If you ask for a new code to be sent to you during this process, it automatically makes any previous code invalid. Please use the most recent code you received. Each code expires after 20 minutes.
- Save your device for easy sign-in next time
Then you can choose to save your device—this means you won’t be asked for a code the next time you sign in. You will need to repeat the 2-factor authentication process for each new device or browser you use to access your Go365 account, such as a tablet, mobile phone, work computer or public computer at a library.
- Add additional methods to receive your codes
Want to add another method to get your code? After you have successfully set up 2-factor authentication, you will be able to add additional ways to receive your code. You will also be asked to choose your preferred contact method for future verification codes.
