Traveling with MFA
If you are traveling and need to access your MFA protected Syracuse University accounts, be sure to configure authentication methods you will have available prior to traveling. Syracuse Abroad students should configure their MFA as soon as possible.
Configuring the Microsoft Authenticator App before you leave enables your access to protected University accounts regardless of location. Students should ensure their authentication methods function correctly and should be sure to have their configured mobile app when they go abroad.
No Methods Available While Traveling or Abroad?
If you have any limitations which prohibit the use of the Microsoft Authenticator App methods while traveling, please contact the ITS Help Desk
