Multi-factor authentication (sometimes also called two-factor authentication) is used on the Portal to increase security and help protect your data. After entering your username and password, you will be sent a one-time passcode (OTP) which you will enter to complete your log in.
Be sure to add both your email address and a cell phone number capable of receiving text messages in your preferences. In case you don't receive the OTP at one, you can use the other method as a back up.
Upon login, existing users will select whether to receive the code via email or text message. You can only choose from the email address or cell phone number that you set up in your OTP preferences.

The one-time passcode isn't working.
- Only the most recently requested code is valid. This means that if you trigger a code to be resent, whether by the same or different method, any previously requested codes will not work.
I didn't receive the one-time passcode.
- It may take up to a minute to receive the passcode. If you still haven't received it, you can click Resend Code to resend a new code using the same method. To receive a code using an alternate method, click Email the Code or Text the Code.
- Users can resend the code once every two minutes. A red error banner will appear if an attempt to prematurely send the code has been made.
- Do not go back to the login screen, you won't be able to get back to the OTP screen to enter your code. You need to wait for the two-minute timer to rundown before you can request another OTP.
Entered one-time passcode, back at Login?
Please make sure that you are only entering the OTP code. Do not hit enter/return afterwards. Hitting enter is not necessary and if you are doing so, it is most likely what is causing you to unintentionally “click” the link that takes you back to the login screen.
Email or Text option is grayed out.
This happens when the information entered is invalid in some way. For example: an email address missing the @, spaces or carriage returns before or after the email or phone number.
