YubiKey for multi-factor authentication (MFA)

If you don't have a smartphone, or you're unable to install the Okta Verify or Google Authenticator apps on your smartphone, you can request a Yubikey (a USB hardware device) during the account activation process.

Once you receive the Yubikey, follow the instruction manual included to set it up.

What's required

You'll need:

  • a USB security key provided by Monash
  • a laptop or computer with a USB port.

Log in using Yubikey

Follow these instructions on how to log in using your YubiKey.

  1. When prompted by the login screen, enter your Monash email address and password, then click Sign In.
  2. When you see the following screen, insert your YubiKey and press and hold the gold disc on the YubiKey device.

  3. TIP: On your computer or the device you regularly use, tick Do not challenge me on this device again. When using that same device and web browser, you'll no longer have to complete an MFA challenge.
