It is very highly encouraged to add multiple sign in methods to Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication. This way, if you are not able to use one of your sign in methods, such as the Microsoft Authenticator App, you will still be able to sign in using any other method you have added.
If you have not already setup your SUNY Fredonia account to use Microsoft MFA, follow these Step-by-Step Microsoft MFA Instructions to setup your account, then revisit this page to add more devices.
Even if you have the Microsoft Authenticator App set up on one device, you are able to use the app on another device. This way, you are able to sign in using the Microsoft Authenticator App on either device.
Adding your phone number will allow you to sign in to your Fredonia account without needing to use the Microsoft Authenticator app. When using your phone for MFA, you will receive a call in order to sign in.
Select Phone, then select Add.
Type in your phone number, including the area code, where it says Enter Phone Number, then select Next.
You will receive a call on the phone that you have entered. Follow the instructions given to you. Once you have completed the instructions, your phone will be added.
Once you have entered a phone, you can register other phones using this option. Select Alternate Phone and then follow the instructions given above for adding a phone.
SUNY Fredonia is not currently supporting personal security keys for Microsoft MFA. Please select another option.
Along with a smartphone, office phones can be use for Microsoft MFA.
Select Office Phone, then select Add.
Enter the office phone number, and the extension, then select Next.
You will receive a call. Follow the instructions given to you. Once you have completed the instructions, the office phone will be added.
