Two-Factor Authentication

Your San Francisco State account security is important! 

Due to the recent rise in phishing attempts and security vulnerabilities, San Francisco State University has implemented two-factor authentication for various campus systems including your Student Center Account, The Gateway, SF State email, iLearn, and many others. Two-factor authentication (2FA, for short) asks individuals to participate with a secondary confirmation of their identity at a portal log-in using a physical device in their possession (a mobile device, app, etc.). San Francisco State University will use Duo Security for two-factor authentication.
