In an effort to help with online protection, UW-Madison will be adding a step to the NetID login later this year. After logging in as we usually do, we’ll then use a smartphone or a fob to verify our identity. If you don’t have a smartphone, you will be provided with a fob.
The purpose of this: even if someone else has your NetID password, they won’t be able to log in to steal information or your identity.
The Division of Continuing Studies is schedule to start this process in February or March. More information can be found here:
In general, this new process should be user-friendly, and we’ll provide detailed instructions when the login process changes.
