What Is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) allows you to add additional verification to confirm your identity and protect access to your accounts. This can help safeguard your accounts in the event that your username and password are compromised.




At Morgan Stanley, we require MFA to log in to your account(s).  We offer several different forms of MFA, such as device registration, one-time security codes, authenticator apps, push notifications and security keys. Fingerprint/Face ID scan is available for Morgan Stanley Mobile App users.
