Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security feature that requires two or more pieces of evidence to verify that a user has the proper authorization to access a site. This may include a password or passcode. When logging in to Embrace® using MFA, users are required to enter an additional code, provided via a separate authentication app or program.
Individual users may set up MFA for their accounts or some districts may establish MFA requirements or all users.

Step 1: Download an authentication app or program (may be specified by your district.)
Step 2: Log in or set up an account on the authentication app or program.
Step 3: Open the authentication app on your mobile phone or desktop.
