Login2 SLU powered by

Saint Louis University is implementing multi-factor authentication to provide additional protection for your SLU accounts.

This enhanced login process combines the traditional SLU Net ID and password with another verification method. The second method of verification can be done with a text or call to a phone, or you may use an app on your mobile device or computer. This multi-factor authentication process is similar to what many banks and other online services are now using. To get started, follow the steps below.

Step 1:
Edit Your Contact Information

The first time you edit your contact information you will be prompted to verify your birthday (First time Only). You may enter up to three phone numbers to receive verification codes via text messages or voice calls.

Step 2:
Install the App (Recommended)

In addition to text or phone calls, you can also setup an app on your computer or mobile device to verify your identity. All the apps will display a time-based code that rotates every 30 seconds and may be entered as part of the login process instead of a text message or voice message. Apps for Android and iOS will also offer the option of a push notification during login.

The SecureAuth OTPAuthenticate App is available for multiple platforms. Click on the icon below to download the version appropriate for this device. You may also find it by searching your app store for the SecureAuth or SecureAuth Authenticate app.

Note: You can install the app on multiple devices. Just open login2.slu.edu on that device.
