In April 2015, UnIT instituted two-factor authentication for all Faculty/Staff members who wish to access the Villanova University network from off campus via the Villanova Gateway.
This process uses an existing phone number to which a phone call or text message is sent. The user will need to answer the phone call or type in a confirmation number in the text message in order to log into the Gateway.
Detailed instructions can be found here. Use Internet Explorer or Firefox to connect for the first time. Users may need to request access to the Gateway from UnIT (9-7777) and provide their phone number before they can log in for the first time.
For more detail on UnIT's initiative, please see this release.
