Two-Factor Authentication, provided by Microsoft, integrates your phone into the login process, resulting in two types of authentication to verify your identity: 

  • Something you know – your PCC Username and password
  • Something you have – your phone (mobile, office or home)

Once a phone is registered with Two-Factor Authentication, attempts to access College systems that utilize this technology require a user to confirm their identity by using the Microsoft Authenticator application on your registered smartphone, via a text message, or by answering a phone call to your registered phone number. 


Follow the instructions on this short 3 minute video to setup 2FA on your device.
