Two-step login

To better protect your data and the university’s infrastructure, the University of Basel is introducing a “two-step log-in” system starting in the fall of 2021. This means that registration for some of the university’s services (such as Webmail, MOnA) requires verification not only of your username and password, but also physical possession of a device such as your smartphone. You may already be familiar with this procedure from e.g. online banking. You can find more information here:
