Students can access Microsoft products at home (e.g. email, One Note, Word, PowerPoint, etc.). In order to access these products, students will be prompted to provide extra verification to ensure safety. Sun West IT Department has created the following Help Sheet to explain the at-home registration process:
MFA provides a secondary means of verifying your identity, such as a text message or notification on your mobile device, when accessing your email account when you are at home or on the road. It will not affect how you log in while you are using the Sun West network. We ask that you take a few moments to set up an alternate authentication method using the link below. I would highly recommend using the mobile app notification, however, text message or phone call will also work just fine. If you choose the app, it is useful to install the application on your phone or tablet before starting the process. The app will require access to your device’s camera as well as permission to display notifications, so please do not block these if you are asked. You can watch a short video walking you through the registration process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWbkLuI4g30&feature=youtu.be The Microsoft Authenticator app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or for Android on Google play: Apple: https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/microsoft-authenticator/id983156458 Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.azure.authenticator&hl=en_CA Having Trouble?
