MULTIFACTOR AUTHENTICATION IS TURNED ON !
To the entire MCC Community,
MFA is a second authentication credential used in addition to the traditional Easylogin username and password.
If you access CCSNH systems (such as MCC Apps Portal, Banner, Canvas, SIS, Email, ZOOM, and others) or M365 (word, excel, outlook, etc.), you are required to use MFA and you will need to authenticate on a regular basis, for example, every 12 hours for web-based applications or if a new browser session is initiated. Applications such as Outlook, Word, Teams, etc. installed on a desktop will prompt for MFA every 90 days.
In order to protect CCSNH’s systems and data, and retain our cyber security liability insurance, the Chancellor’s Office has implemented Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) at CCSNH & all NH community colleges. Attempted data breaches are occurring at an alarming rate and are becoming increasingly complicated. The information stolen can include personal id information like social security numbers as well as usernames and passwords. Passwords alone are no longer sufficient to protect critical data. Adding MFA will help remediate the risk of attack and data loss. MFA credentialing is used frequently for many personal tasks you likely perform online already, such as banking.
MFA was implemented for employees in the spring of 2022.
MFA was implemented for students on Monday, August 8th, 2022.
Additional communication, instructions, and FAQs will be shared as the date to implement MFA for Manchester Community College approaches. At that time, you will need to register for a device to receive the MFA credentials and then use MFA credentials each time you access CCSNH systems.

Everyone will be prompted to complete a quick, one-time registration process when logging onto Canvas, SIS, Student or Web-based email, Student Navigate, etc for the very first time (after claiming your EasyLogin account).
Simply supply a personal email address and/or telephone number capable of receiving texts.
If you provide a personal email address, an email will be sent to that address. Make sure you find that email and follow the prompts to finish the email setup.
If you provide a cellphone number, you will immediately be prompted to provide the code texted to that phone number. provide the code to setup that phone number as a valid authentication source.
It's that simple.

Another helpful tip which many people now make use of is that most browsers also offer a private browsing mode and you can use that option; attempt to log in and see if that helps. The Private or Incognito browsing mode option is in the Options/Settings menu; it may be entitled “New Private Window”, “New InPrivate Window” or “New Incognito Window”. Check out this Computer World article - How to go incognito in Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Safari for more information.
You can also try different internet browsers. Firefox, Chrome, Edge & Safari are all great browsers to use.
The following is an excerpt from a CCSNH IT Notification received on April 3rd, 2020.
To All CCSNH Faculty and Staff,
Effective immediately, the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) will be implementing a new password policy to align with current industry standards. The new, low impact policy will apply to all CCSNH EasyLogin accounts which are used to access Canvas, Email, SIS, Library Services, etc. This new policy, which is the same as introduced to Students earlier this year, will extend your current password expiration from 4 months to 12 months. When it comes time to change your password on the next scheduled rotation, passwords must be 14-64 character without any complexity (for example, your password can be all lowercase) and no limits on special characters. Email reminders to change your password will start at least four weeks prior to your expiration date.
If you have already received a notification that your password is expiring and need to change it, that can be ignored until the next email notifications you get 8 months from now.
While you can use any combination of letters, recent research shows using passphrases instead of traditional passwords are more secure and easier to remember. Here's an article published by the Washington Post which explains the different between passwords and passphrases: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/08/11/theres-a-new-way-to-make-strong-passwords-and-its-way-easier/
