Microsoft Authenticator - Key to the Kingdon
The graphic below shows the doorway Microsoft Authenticator provides for emeriti staff to access services, information and resources previously locked behind the Mayo Clinic firewall. Virtually everything save for the Emeritus Website requires this for two step verification at some point e.g. you can go directly to "Ask Mayo Expert" or the Library with only your login credential, but eventually you will need to renew your password and that requires the Authenticator tool.
Many sites and tools are now accessible outside the firewall. However, most require the Microsoft Authenticator app to access or login (a two-step verification process); hence it is basically the key to a kingdom of resources and helps maintain a higher level of security. Here is the link on how to install this new app.
To install this new app, go to the Digital Connections page from the Staying Connected page of the Emeritus Website (emeritus.mayo.edu) and then to Microsoft Authenticator in the sidebar on the right for instructions.
The Microsoft Authenticator app will make it easier to access these resources and help you keep your password up to date. The Emeritus Website is the singular exception since no login is necessary to view all its contents and features.
