Tech Tip of the Week: 2FA Non-Illinois Recovery Email

This week’s Tech Tip is about 2-Factor Authentication!

Making sure you have a recovery email tied to your 2FA account that is not your Illinois email account is very important, since your Illinois email requires 2FA to log in.

If you don’t do this before your phone meets tragedy, you may have issues setting up a new device because you need to use  2FA to access your 2FA account.

You can make sure you have a non-Illinois recovery email set up at this link!
