MFA - Frequently Asked Questions
Guidance for MFA deployment
MFA for Guest users
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) will be introduced during February for external persons who collaborate with the University of Oulu using our Microsoft 365 environment. This applies e.g. to people who have been invited to join our Teams or who have access to a shared content, such as files, on Oulu University's Microsoft 365 OneDrive or SharePoint environments. A Guest user account is basically some other email address than our organization’s email. Please NOTE, that Multi-Factor authentication does NOT apply to normal Teams meetings. If it is a Teams channel meeting and you join a meeting as a registered team member, MFA may be asked.
- When MFA is deployed for Guest users and the next time you sign in to the MS 365 environment at the University of Oulu, you will receive a notification More information required at the login stage.
- You will be directed to set your authentication method.
- Follow the on-screen instructions and insert the phone details you wish to use for authenticate your login.
