All Ryerson instructors and staff are required to use two-factor authentication in order to access Library eResources, eHR, RAMSS, and D2L Brightspace as of August 1, 2018.
Setting up two-factor in two steps
Step 2: Add two-factor to your Ryerson account
(i) Log in to my.ryerson with your username and password.
(ii) Look for the Self Service module and click Personal Account.
(iii) Under the Security section, click Two-Factor Authentication.
What to do if you don’t have a mobile phone
If you don’t have a mobile phone or prefer not to use your phone, you can use a universal second factor (U2F) security key or a one-time verification (OTV) code generator. Check with your department for approval purchasing a U2F or OTV.
How two-factor helps secure your account
Two-factor is the best way to protect your Ryerson account and the information in it. With two-factor enabled, even if someone guesses or steals your password, they won’t be able to access your account without something only you would have, such as your phone. It will also protect your account from attackers in cases such as payroll diversions, identity theft, theft of intellectual property, and exam data.
