As you make new benefits choices during open enrollment, you’re making sure you and your family have the right medical, financial, and other care benefits to ensure your health and well-being. To help protect your personal information at U-M and your online identity overall, you can take advantage of a new benefit to U-M employees. When you turn on two-factor (Duo) for Weblogin (the login screen for Wolverine Access, U-M Google, and more), you stop hackers in their tracks and protect your personal information.
You now have the option to use two-factor when logging in to services via the Weblogin page. You may already use two-factor (Duo) to access certain U-M systems that require two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication combines a password (something you know) with a second factor, like a passcode or push notification sent to your phone (something you have). U-M uses Duo Security.
When you turn on two-factor for Weblogin, you add an extra layer of security to your personal information in Wolverine Access -- including your benefits information, W-2s, direct deposit info -- and your U-M Google email. If someone gets their hands on your UMICH (Level-1) password, they could pretend to be you online. But not if you turn on two-factor for Weblogin!
