Microsoft MFA - UWM MFA-Secured Applications and Session Length Durations
Beginning on June 14, 2022, UWM applications session durations were changed from 14 days to the new standard in accordance with UW System Board of Regents Information Security Policy.
The chart below shows the session duration based on the application:
"Remember Me" Duration
|M365 Web User||12 hours|
|UWM Systems (Canvas, PAWS, etc.)||12 hours|
|M365 Desktop and Mobile User||90 days|
Any web applications will require authentication every 12 hours, despite that it will display a "remember me for 90 days" box. This message or option cannot be removed from the authentication process as it is Microsoft messaging. The message does not apply to UWM web based applications.
If you change your password, you will need to re-authenticate with all applications. All authentication automatically resets in the event of a password reset.
