Brightspace sign-in process extra secure

15 March 2021

From 22 March the sign-in process for Brightspace will be extra secure for lecturers and guests.

You will then have to complete an extra step when signing in, using what is known as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

What do you need to do?

  • activate MFA through your Account services page
  • choose the button/tile Multi Factor Authentication
  • choose the NetIQ application or private e-mail 

Make sure to do this before 22 March; otherwise you won’t be able to sign in to Brightspace without using MFA.
