Number matching is a key security upgrade to traditional second factor notifications in Microsoft Authenticator.

In order to login to certain Lynn University services and applications, users will now be required to enter a 2-digit number, shown on the screen of the device when logging in, into the Microsoft Authenticator app on a mobile device.

  • To authenticate, log in to the application or service on a computer or mobile device.
  • Once the email address and password have been entered successfully, the authentication window will appear and an authentication "push" will be sent to the configured Microsoft Authenticator app.
