    Why you should use 2FA for Santa Clara University?

    Santa Clara University is a prestigious institution that values the security and privacy of its students, faculty, and staff. One way to ensure this is by enabling 2-factor authentication (2FA) on your SCU account. 
     
    
     2FA adds an extra layer of security to your account by requiring a second form of authentication, such as a code sent to your phone or a fingerprint scan. This makes it much harder for hackers to gain access to your account, even if they have your password. 
     
    
     By using our Authenticator app, you can easily store your 2FA codes and access them whenever you need them. Our app is designed with security and privacy in mind, so you can trust that your codes are safe with us. 
     
    
     In addition to enabling 2FA, there are other steps you can take to protect your SCU account. Make sure to use a strong, unique password and never share it with anyone. Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks, as they can be easily hacked. And always be wary of suspicious emails or messages asking for your login information. 
     
    
     At Santa Clara University, we take security seriously. By enabling 2FA and following these tips, you can help keep your account safe and secure.
