Setting up Microsoft MFA (two-factor authentication)

Microsoft MFA at FVTC

Fox Valley Technical College is deploying a new security feature called Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (Microsoft MFA) for all of our accounts. Multi-Factor Authentication adds a safe and secure two-step verification method to enhance the protection of your personal information and online accounts.

In addition to providing your online credentials (username and password), you will need to complete an additional two-step verification method to access certain Fox Valley Technical College online systems that may contain your secure personal, educational, or financial information. These two-step verification methods can be your choice of a range of authentication methods such as phone call, text message, mobile app notification, or one-time password (OTP).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Setting up Duo (two-factor authentication)

To protect your account, as well as protecting our student’s information, FVTC uses two-factor authentication to verify many of your system sign-ins. 
Your bank or credit card companies may use similar systems to verify when you sign in to those sites as well.

FVTC uses a highly regarded system called “Duo.”  

PLEASE NOTE! BEFORE YOU BEGIN: You will need to have a valid FVTC ID number and password.

Download the App

We highly recommend downloading the Duo app for the best user experience.  It can be found in both iTunes and Google Play Stores.

The logo looks like this:

Step 3: Click Start Setup to begin.

Duo Tips

  • FImage of a Duo fobor the best experience, we highly recommend using a smart phone.  However, it is not required. 

  • You can use landline phones, such as your FVTC desk phone, a personal home landline or cell phone. We recommend having multiple options.

  • IF NONE OF THESE OPTIONS ARE CONVENIENT: You can request a hardware token (shown here), which will generate a unique code for your login attempts. 
    • Request one by calling the helpdesk: 920-735-5644.

How do I get in?

  • Access your MyFVTC Account 
    • Append mode is used when there is no button to send a push or text box to enter a duo passcode.
      It uses this pattern when you enter your password:  Your Password -- A Comma -- Then a command or code

       Example:  MyPassword,push Example:  MyPassword,123456 Example:  MyPassword,phone1

      Additional append mode information can be found on the official Duo Website here
