Two-factor authentication requires users to provide two proofs of their identity when logging in, which increases security for U-M web-based resources. The two proofs of identity used for two-factor authentication at the university are your UMICH password and a physical device called an MToken. To learn more, see About Two-Factor Authentication and the MToken.
Obtaining, Activating and Using an MToken
Step-by-step instructions for getting your MToken, activating it, and using it, as well setting up questions to allow you to request a temporary tokencode in case you forget your MToken.
MToken Help Desks and Distribution Centers
Locations where you can get an MToken or speak with an MToken administrator in person.
MToken Service Center (MTSC) Online
A website you can visit to activate your MToken, test it, and request a temporary tokencode.
To return an MToken you no longer need, send it to ITS Access & Accounts (2019 ASB, 1432) via campus mail, or drop it off at any of the MToken Distribution Centers.
If your MToken expires, breaks, or is lost, you can get a replacement by going in person to one of the MToken Distribution Centers. You will need to show your MCard for identification to receive a replacement MToken.
