CalNet 2-Step Verification

CalNet 2-Step verification provides an important, additional layer of protection against the theft of your CalNet credentials. You have likely experienced 2-Step verification with accounts such as online banking. When logging in, after you enter your CalNet ID and password, you will be prompted for a second step using a verification device that you set up. The second step could just be a tap on your phone!

Why should I do the CalNet 2-Step?

  • It ensures you're the only person accessing your account.
  • You'll be adding another layer of security (other than just your password).
  • Doing the CalNet 2-Step follows cyber-security best practice.
  • You'll be doing your part to protect institutional data at UC Berkeley.
