March 8- Changes to Login for Mason Applications

On Sunday, March 8, Information Technology Services (ITS) unified the login experience across most applications by having authentication services hosted by a third-party provider. Information about these changes is available at 2FA Roadmap 2019-2020.

  • Impact on Users Enrolled in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
    This change added 2FA to all applications which use Shibboleth to authenticate such as Webex, Salesforce, Handshake, StarRez, LinkedIn Learning, and Qualtrics. As of March 8, 2FA users will see the new login page (see image below) and be prompted to use 2FA with these additional applications. Blackboard will not require 2FA at this time.
  • Impact on Users NOT Enrolled in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
    As of March 8, users not enrolled in 2FA will see the new login page for Mason applications (see image below) and WILL NOT be prompted or required to use 2FA. Users not enrolled in 2FA at Mason are highly encouraged to do so for an extra layer of protection of your personal information. See for details.
