In many instances you can now sign in by only entering a number sent to your Microsoft Authenticator app after unlocking your screen instead of your password. You will still have the option to sign in with a password, if needed. In limited cases (such as computers on campus, campus wifi, and more) you may still need to log in with you password.

To log in without a password, download and install the Microsoft Authenticator app from the Google Play Store or Apple Store, if you do not already have it. Add your Madison College account with your College email address and password.

Within the app, select your Madison College account. Choose ‘Set up phone sign in – Sign in without a password’.

There is also the option to 'Use your password instead,' if needed.
