Bypass codes are nine-digit passcodes that you can use to complete multi-factor authentication prompts. Enter the codes in the Passcode field of the MFA prompt. DIT recommends you use bypass codes as a backup for when you do not have your primary MFA device available. Pushing a login request to your phone or tablet is the recommended method for authenticating.
Contact the Service Desk if you have any questions.
If you are unwilling or unable to use other methods of MFA, you may use bypass codes as a primary means for authenticating.
NOTE: To use bypass codes as your only method of authenticating, contact the Service Desk or visit Terrapin Tech on the ground floor of the Edward St. John Learning and Teaching Center (ESJ), by the Campus Drive entrance. You will need to provide a phone number for first time registration (the number will not be used for authentication and is for record keeping).

Keep your bypass codes in a secure place that only you have access to. Bypass codes are available for one-time use only and will expire after 180 days.
