Will I need to use MFA everytime I log in or for every application?

Off Campus

When you use MFA on the first log in, ensure that you check the box ask again in 30 days whilst on that device. It will not prompt you again on that device for 30 days. If you log in from a different device it will prompt you again for MFA.

On Campus

MFA will not be required when on campus computers or whilst connected to WiFi (eduroam).  If you do want to use the VPN from WiFi, you will need to use MFA as the VPN requires MFA regardless of location.
