having problems authenticating. What do I do?
A: If you are having difficulties logging into the Protective Enclave, try logging into MFA first.

Once you are able to successfully login to the MFA site, then try to login to the Protective Enclave. Note that if you immediately log into the Protective Enclave site after successfully logging into the MFA site, there is a short window of time where you will only be prompted for username/password and not your MFA authentication.

Q: When is the MFA backup
A: If you are using the phone call method and you do not answer the primary phone number or it goes to voice mail, then it will call the phone number you have defined as your backup phone number after it did not reach you on your primary phone number.
