PATH: Account Settings
The Account Settings tool allows Campus users to update their account security preferences. This tool functions differently depending upon whether or not Password Reset functionality is enabled.
See the sections below for information about the two ways in which this tool functions.
Administrators must ensure ALL non-Portal users are given at least R(ead) tool rights for the Account Settings tool.

To establish your Account Security Email address for the first time, click the Add button in the Account Security Email Column.
To change your existing Account Security Email address, click the Edit button in the Account Security Email column (Image 2).

Enabling Device-Based Two-Factor Authentication
As an increased layer of protection for your Infinite Campus account, users can enable device-based two-factor authentication functionality. When enabled, users are provided a unique QR code and Text Code which requires the user authenticate their account using a device and an Authenticator application (such as Google Authenticator, Authy, LastPass, etc).
This feature can only be applied to non-Campus Portal account.
BIE Users: This functionality is enabled by default and cannot be disabled. All non-Campus Portal accounts are required to register a device and use an authenticator app when logging into Infinite Campus. This process is described in detail in the User Account article.
To enable this feature, click the Options button (Image 6).
Image 6: Time-Based Two-Factor Authentication Options
A page will display, showing a unique QR Code and Text Code. Using a device (such as cell phone), download an authenticator app (such as Google Authenticator, Authy, LastPass, etc) and use the app the scan the QR Code or enter the Text Code. This will authenticate your device and tie it to your Campus account. In future Infinite Campus logins, the device you just registered will need to be available for use in authenticating your account prior to being logged into Campus.
Mark the Enable two-factor authentication checkbox and click the Save icon. Time-based two-factor authentication is now enabled on your account (Image 7).
Image 7: Authenticating a Device Using an Authenticator App
Once two-factor authentication is enabled, future attempts to log into your Infinite Campus account will display a screen like the one shown below (Image 8). Open your authenticator app on your registered device and enter the code displayed in the authenticator app into field on the Infinite Campus login screen (Image 8).
Once entered, make sure the Recognize this device in the future checkbox is marked and click Continue. If the code you entered is correct, you will be logged into Infinite Campus.
Image 8: Logging in Using an Authenticator Code
For security reasons, if you lose the phone or device you registered to authenticate your account, you should click the Reset Registration Code button in the Account Settings tool (found by clicking the Options button) and repeat the process of registering a device using your new phone or device (Image 9). This process removes the ability for the lost device to be used to authenticate your account.
