Okta Perks:

As an added benefit of enrolling with Okta, we're excited to announce two new changes that will enhance your security and convenience.

  1. We are extending the password expiration period to 18 months, giving you more time to use your existing password before needing to update it.
  2. We are extending multi-factor authentication (MFA) to 7 days per device and per browser, providing you with added flexibility and ease-of-use while still maintaining the highest levels of security.

We're constantly striving to improve our services and these updates are just one example of our ongoing commitment to your safety and satisfaction.
