From 8 June, the European Commission will introduce two-factor authentication for all users of the NAconnECt Wiki information sharing platform and the Erasmus+ Project Results Platform (EPRP).
This change is being introduced as a security measure and applies to all users, including Erasmus+ applicants and beneficiaries who access these platforms.
EU Login supports a variety of verification procedures, however, the recommended two-factor authentication methods are:
- EU Login Mobile App: PIN code
- EU Login Mobile App: QR code
Therefore, to continue accessing these platforms from 8 June, you will need to install and initialise the EU Login Mobile App on your mobile phone or tablet.
The EU Login Mobile App is free of charge, user friendly and can be obtained from the Google Play Store (Android), the App Store (iOS) or the Windows Store (Windows Phone).
For instructions on how to install and initialise the App, please see page 12 of the EU Login Two Factor Authentication Tutorial (1.9 MB).
Guidelines on how to use one of the two recommended two step verification methods can be found on pages 5 (EU Login Mobile App: PIN code) and 6 (EU Login Mobile App: QR code).
This change only applies to NAconnECt, the EPRP and other external wikis of the European Commission. Logging in to other EU services, such as Mobility Tool+, remains unchanged.
Please note, due to increased traffic at this current time, you may experience slow response times when accessing the NAconnECT Wiki and the EPRP, or setting up the two-factor authentication.
