    UCLA Logon Page - Shib
  • Step 2: Click on My Settings & Devices

    On the select authentication window, click on My Settings & Devices.

  • Step 3: Authenticate to Change Settings

    Follow the instructions on screen to authenticate with MFA before making changes to your settings and devices.

  • Step 4: Choose your preferred action for your default device

    Select the action that you would like to be taken when you get the MFA prompt on the When I Log in field. Then click Save.
