GRCC Information Technology will be requiring a new security measure to protect your GRCC Google Account! Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) adds an additional layer of security in verifying your identity. It also helps to prevent attackers from logging into your account in the unfortunate event that an attacker obtains your password.
There are few ways to verify your identity while logging into your GRCC email account such as receiving a verification code via SMS to your established phone number or selecting Yes on your phone when prompted by Google.
Once you have successfully logged in using 2FA on a trusted computer/device that you designate, you should not be prompted with 2FA again. However, if you login via VMware, you will be prompted to verify your identity each new VMware session.
As a reminder, all staff Google account users will be required to enroll in 2FA by June 2, 2022. Starting May 16th, all users that do not have 2FA setup will receive a prompt to do so upon login to their Google Account
