OneLogin Account Setup

Updated

OneLogin is secure a single sign on solution

1. On a computer using any web browser go to uarts.onelogin.com

Doing these first steps on a computer and not on your smart phone or tablet will make things easier later

2. Enter your UArts username

3. Enter your UArts Password.

4. You will be prompted to set up 2-factor authentication. Click Begin Setup.

2-factor authentication requires an additional login credential - beyond just the username and password - to gain access to your account.

5. Select your primary 2-factor authentication method.

Choices for 2-factor authentication:

  • OneLogin Protect - Requires installing the OneLogin Protect app on your tablet or smart phone
  • OneLogin SMS - Uses SMS texting on your mobile phone
  • OneLogin Security Questions - Requires you to select and answer five security questions
  • Google Authenticator - Requires installing the Google Authenticator app on your tablet or smart phone

You can change and/or add any of these methods to your account later but you must have at least one.

Using OneLogin Security Questions is the only option if you do not have/wish to use a smart phone or tablet, however it is also the least secure and is therefore not recommended.

6. Jump to the 2-factor authentication method you wish to set up.
