Microsoft Authenticator

Recently, we have seen a number of instances where hackers have obtained access to a user's Office 365 account.  Once they access the account, they will send fraudulent requests to change bank account information or wire instructions, and then create a rule
to mark new messages as "read" and move them to either the junk or
deleted items folder.

Step 1 – Change your Email Password

To change your password, follow these instructions:

  1. Sign in to with your work or school
  2. Go to Settings > Password.
  3. Enter your old password.
  4. Create a new password and confirm it.
  5. Select Submit to finish and change your password

Step 2 - Add 2 Factor Authentication

Note - your administrator must turn on 2 Factor Authentication first.

Once your admin enables your organization with 2-step verification (also called multi-factor authentication), you have to set up your account to use it.

By setting up 2-step verification, you add an extra layer of security to
your Office 365 account. You sign in with your password (step 1) and a code
sent to your phone (step 2), either via text message or an application such as the Microsoft Authenticator.
