My Queen’s account is asking me to set up 2-Factor Authentication, what do I do?If you are logging into your Queen’s account and it is saying you need to set up 2-Factor Authentication (also known as 2FA or MFA/Multi-factor Authentication) all you need to do is follow the instructions that come up.

You will be required to install Microsoft Authenticator App on your phone / or an alternative authenticator app of your choice and then go through the process of linking your Queen’s account to it. The process should be very similar to when you set up 2FA/MFA for your St Mary’s account.
My Queen’s account is asking for my 2-step verification code but I don’t have it set up.If you are trying to log in to your queen’s university account and it is asking you to “Enter the code displayed on the Microsoft Authenticator app on your mobile device” then you have, at some stage, set up 2FA for your queen’s account.

If you are no longer getting a code to your authenticator app or no longer have the phone that you orginally set the 2FA on then you need to contact Queen’s Student Helpline on +44 (0)28 9097 3223 or email reghelp@qub.ac.uk and ask them that you require your 2FA to be reset as you are not recieving the code within authenticator and you need to re-register again for your multifactor authentication.

Once they have done this all you have to do is log into your Queen’s 365 account and follow the instructions on how to set up your 2FA again.

It is possibly because you previously had them wiped by the C2K Helpdesk (as part of the password reset protocol), but did not reset them again after we reset your c2k password.
