Two-Factor Authentication Security Added

What is two-factor authentication (2FA)?

o Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps safeguard your account information. This new security feature will replace the previous security image and security questions functions.

o To implement 2FA, you will need to enroll an email address then enter a phone number (mobile or landline). Once this information is entered, you’ll choose one of three options to receive a one-time verification code:

1. Text message to the mobile phone entered
2. Automated phone call to phone number entered

o After entering the verification code, if you are logging in from a secure computer, you will have the option to select “Don’t ask for code again on this computer.” This allows you to avoid having to enter a verification code during each login. NOTE: This option should never be selected on a shared or public computer.

How does the phone call verification process work?

o If you select to receive a phone call to either your cell phone or landline, you will be prompted to enter a single specific digit, as directed, before the verification code is provided.

o If you do not answer the phone call, please note that a second call will not be made and the system will not leave codes on voicemail. Therefore, if you do not answer the authentication phone call, you will need to select the option to have the code re-sent.

NOTE: The “from” phone number may be listed as coming from anywhere in the US. If the phone does not ring and shows a missed call that you suspect to be the verification phone call, check phone settings for Blocked or Silenced Unknown Callers. You may need to disable this feature until the verification process is complete.

What should I do if I did not receive a verification code to continue with the two-factor authentication enrollment?

o Please be sure the phone number you entered is correct. You will have the option to “Resend” the code or “Try Another Way” – such as a phone call. If you do not receive a verification code, please contact us at 517-676-3661.

How much time do I have to enter the verification code?

o Codes are valid for three to six minutes and will expire after that time.

Can I lock myself out from entering an incorrect verification code?

o Yes, you can get locked out of the enrollment process if too many attempts are made with an incorrect verification code (more than six times in a single hour). There is no manual reset for this; you will need to wait an hour to try again following your first attempt. If you make more than 20 unsuccessful attempts in a 24-hour period, your login will be ‘Suspended’ and you will not be able to attempt again for 24 hours. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact us at 517-676-3661.

If I selected “Remember this computer,” why am I being asked for a verification code each time I log in?

o There are several reasons you may be prompted for a verification code:

 if you log in on different browsers
 if you deleted your browser history
 if you have your browser settings set to delete your cookies and history automatically
 if you log in from a different device

Can I receive the two-factor authentication verification code via email?
o No, this option is not available. The code can be received using one of the following options:

 Text message
 Phone call (to cell or landline)

How can I reset my two-factor authentication enrollment?
o You can reset your own two-factor authentication enrollment in both the app and online by going to your Profile page, then select ‘Security’ within the ‘Settings’ area.
