To ensure you can access WPI resources that require Multifactor Authentication (MFA) while abroad, especially if your usual mobile phone calling and texting services are not available. 

Action Needed

Change MFA verficitation methods using the Action: Setup Multifactor Authentication.


Because international cell service varies, the Microsoft Authenticator app for MFA is an excellent option when travelling outside the USA. If you plan on international travel during the summer, please change your MFA to use the Microsoft Authenticator app so you will still be able to access resources such as Workday while abroad.

Current MFA methods in use at WPI include:

  • Microsoft Authenticator App ( 1 tap to approve!)
  • Text Message to Cell Phone
  • Call Cell Phone
  • Call Landline Phone (office extension or other landline)
