UMass Dartmouth utilizes a campus-based, single sign-on system.
What is single sign-on?
Single sign-on (SSO) allows you to log in once with your UMassD logon and access multiple systems. For UMassD-based systems (e.g., 25Live, Corsair Jobs), you will not be prompted to log in again during that session.
Tips to protect your account and personal information
- Log out of the system
- Log out of the portal
- Close your browser
This will ensure a secure and complete logout of your single sign-on session.
Although logging in through SSO is secure, it is extremely important to protect your password.
Systems that currently participate in campus-based or system SSO
- Facilities service request (Tririga work order system)
- Office 365
- PeopleSoft Finance
Multifactor Authentication (MFA)
The goal of MFA is to create a layered defense to make it more difficult for an unauthorized person to gain access to your accounts.
- Multifactor authentication is a control that strengthens security by requiring two or more methods to verify your identity.
- These factors can include something you know (username) along with something you have (a smartphone app).
- MFA is popular with on-line banking and many cloud services (Apple, Google, Microsoft).
- The UMass System uses Duo for multifactor authentication.
