What is UTmail Two-Factor Authentication and How Do I Sign Up?
Unlike other UT services which use Duo for two-factor authentication, UTmail uses Google's own two-factor authentication system.
This works by obtaining codes through the Google Authenticator app, or responding to push notifications from the general Google app.
