Setting Up Multi-Factor Authentication
ABFM offers Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) as a secondary method to verify your identity when logging into your Physician Portfolio or to recover and reset your password. MFA provides you better protection by making it difficult for your account to be compromised. When choosing to enable MFA, you have the option to receive a phone call or text message to verify your identity. You also have the option to choose to use MFA upon every login, every six months, or only when you need to recover your password.
Setting up MFA:
- Log into your Physician Portfolio and select “Continue” when prompted.
- Verify or add phone number to be used in this process.
- Choose how often to use this process.
It’s that simple!
Set up your MFA now.
