  7. Select Text +X XXXXXXXXX - six-digit code will be sent to your phone via a text message

Using multi-factor authentication:

  1. From time to time, when you log in to a JCC information system from any device, you will be prompted to approve your sign-in request through your Microsoft Authenticator app.
