You already know the multifactor principle from login to, for example, your online bank, borger.dk, etc., where you must enter a code from yourNEMID.
The reason for using multifactor validation is security. Your mobile phone becomes a physical key that cannot be stolen over the net. In practice, the solution works in such a way that, after you have entered a correct password, a validation is sent to your mobile phone (via the app).
For security reasons, AAU introduces continuous multifactor validation on several services using the Microsoft Authenticator app.
The first time you sign up for the MicrosoftAuthenticator app, you must be physically on campus and logged in to AAU's network AAU-1x or Eduroam.
