A multi-factor authentication (MFA) method is used to confirm a user’s identity. MFA is a security system that requires more than one method of authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify the user’s identity for a login. This would include your user Id and password, and in certain instances, an Identity Confirmation/Authentication Code will be required. An Identity Confirmation/Authentication Code is a five digit code that can either be sent to you by email or by text to your cell phone. 

There are many reasons why an Identity Confirmation/Authentication Code may be required. Any time there are changes or inconsistencies, including but not limited to, a change in a login pattern or computer update, an authentication code may be required.
