TLU offers Multi-Factor Authentication through Microsoft. When you enable MFA, you will log into your student email, Brightspace and portal account and you will enable an extra layer of protection by needing a call or text pin verification number.

There are many different ways for viruses to be put on your computer:
- emails infected with malware within attachments
- infected links found in emails, texts, and messaging over social media

By taking precautions and becoming knowledgeable about these scams and cyber threats, you can be better protected to not catch a virus or get your personal information taken.
