What is changing with your sign-on experience and when

From Wednesday 8 March, you will no longer be able to stay permanently signed into shared computers or platforms such as Teams or Outlook using your University Microsoft 365 account.

How this may affect you

You still won’t need to verify your identity with your Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) methods every time you sign in, but you may be prompted to sign in with your username and password more often to reduce the risks of remaining signed in for extended periods.

Why is this happening

Following the changes to your University Microsoft 365 account in December which required you to set up Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) methods to verify your identity, this additional measure is being introduced to further enhance the security of our University systems and data.
