Penn WebLogin two-step verification
Why you should use it
Two-step verification dramatically reduces the risk of someone stealing your identity and attacking Penn. Even if they acquire your password, they still can't log in.
How it works
Two-step verification adds an extra layer of security whenever you log in. Step 1 uses something only you know (your PennKey password). Step 2 uses something only you have (such as your smartphone).
- Enter your PennKey and password as usual.
- When prompted, enter a code from your phone or other device.
You can automate Step 2 by making your browser trusted (optional). If no one else uses that browser, you only need to enter a code if you haven't used it to log in during the past 30 days.
