Service Provider and Temp affiliates will be required to use Two-Step Verification beginning February 15, 2018

Beginning this Thursday, February 15, individuals with Service Provider (e.g., contractors) and Temporary affiliations will be required to use Two-Step Verification to access PennKey-protected web resources. This change is part of Penn's requirement that all staff enroll in Two-Step to enhance security for University information assets and community members’ personal data.

ISC has been collaborating with representatives of school and center IT organizations to roll out Two-Step across the University. However, due to difficulties identifying sponsoring organizations and communicating with Service Provider and Temp affiliation populations, not all impacted individuals may be aware of this new requirement.

As a reminder, Two-Step self-help resources and a link to the enrollment application are available at
