Multi-factor authentication (MFA) overview

Alerts and notices

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds another layer of identity verification to your sign-in process so your protection against hacking and fraud attempts is stronger and more secure than a simple password. 

Who is required to use MFA?

It is recommended that all staff enable MFA, but it's only required for staff members that need to transmit electronic files from UltraTax CS. Those that do not need to transmit don't have to enable MFA for their accounts.

MFA Options 

Primary options

  • Thomson Reuters Authenticator app. Free, on Apple iOS and Android devices, and is the only MFA option that includes push notifications.
  • Thomson Reuters Authenticator Card. Can be helpful if you don't have or want to use a phone or tablet.
  • Third-party authenticator apps. From Microsoft, Google, Symantec, Duo, LastPass, etc.

    Choose this if you already uses one of these apps and want to use it for your Thomson Reuters applications.
