SecureConnect is multi-factor authentication service that adds security to Staff and Faculty accounts by using both your password and a personal device, or factor, to confirm your identity and prevent anyone but you from logging into the University's Central Authentication Service (CAS). Use an iOS, Android, or Windows smartphone or tablet as well as a landline or mobile voice call system.
