Does Conroe ISD use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
Apart from the SSO service, ClassLink also offers a Multi-Factor Authentication service to protect your account. It adds an extra authentication along with login credentials. After entering your username and password you will have to authenticate your login through a security code sent to you as per your authentication method.
This way, it helps to keep all student and employee data safe and provides an extra layer of security.
Conroe ISD was previously using the Google Authenticator App to implement SSO and now switched to the Multi-factor authentication by ClassLink to enhance the district security.
How to set up MFA?
If you are logging in to Launchpad for the first time, you will be prompted to set up Multi Factor Authentication. You can use any one of the two choices for MFA.
- Mobile method – Set up the Mobile authentication by using the Google Authenticator app.
- SMS method – Set up by entering your mobile number.
If you are using the Mobile method then download the app through the below links.
Note: If you already have the Google Authenticator app on your phone, you will need to remove the old SSO. For iPhone users open the app, (1) tap the three dots in the upper right corner, (2) choose Edit. (3) Tap the pencil, (4) tap the trash can to remove the previous SSO from the app on your phone.
