The Microsoft Authenticator app allows you to confirm your identity when you are away from the UMMC network. This authentication process ensures that your device and accounts are secure against threats and attacks when you connect away from campus. (Many online banks and email accounts use a similar process, prompting you to answer security questions to confirm that it is really you who is logging in)
You’ll need this app to securely access apps such as the Outlook mobile app, the Workday app, Webmail, and more when you are not connected to UMMC’s network (i.e., from home or a public place).
If you are an Entrust user: UMMC is gradually moving away from Entrust and slowly replacing it with Microsoft Authenticator. We plan to move to Microsoft Authenticator exclusively by October 2019. Until then, please be on the lookout for emails and information regarding additional applications that will move to Authenticator over the coming months.
