Is TMU (Ryerson) using the Two-Factor Authentication?
Yes, Two-Factor Authentication is enabled for all TMU accounts including the TMU student portal, D2L Broghtspace, Microsoft 365 Apps, etc. 2FA was enabled to enhance the overall system security by introducing an extra authentication after entering the user login credentials.
The student portal is now accessible through two steps.
- First student will enter the username and password.
- After that student will authenticate the login through a mobile app push notification or other type of authentication such as a security code.
If you haven’t set up the 2FA yet then we are sharing easy steps to set up through an authenticator app.
If you want to set up 2FA through an authentication app then please follow the below process.
There are two parts to this process.

Now you will have to scan the QR code from the authentication app you have installed on your smartphone. After the scan, verify it through a security code received on your authenticator app.
Your 2FA setup is completed at this stage. Now you will have to authenticate your login every time you are accessing your account from a new web browser or a new device.
Two-factor authentication may not be required if you are connected to the Toronto Metropolitan University network. It is advised that please don’t delete the authenticator app as you will be asked to authenticate your login every time.
