  1. Visit https://aka.ms/MFASetup (recommended from a PC or VDI)
  2. Sign in by entering your Rivier email address and password. You will be asked to provide more information.
  3. Microsoft suggests using Microsoft Authenticator app. If you prefer to use the text message option, you will need to click “I want to set up a different method” at the bottom of the page. Do not click Next.
  4. A dialog box will appear with a drop-down menu. Change the method to Phone (from app), then click Next.
  5. Enter your 10-digit phone number, select “Text me a code” and then click Next.
  6. You will then get a text message code on your phone. Enter the code on your PC and click Next.
  7. If the code was entered correctly, you will see a confirmation (“SMS verified.”). Click Next.
  8. The next page forces you to create an app password. Most people do not need this app password. Simply type any 8 letters into the box and then click Next.
  9. Again, you do not need your app password. Ignore this screen and click Done.
  10. If you see “Success!” then you are done! Click Done.
