Okta - Add and Remove MFA Options

This article reviews the process for editing MFA options to either remove, update, or add additional MFA options to your Okta Profile.


MFA options can be updated after the initial enrollment from the Okta Profile page. You can remove and add new factors. To update already enrolled factors, you will have to remove the factor and set the factor back up. The steps below provide instructions on getting to the Okta profile page and how to remove and add factors.

Access your Okta Profile page:

  • Browse to https://go.parkland.edu/oktaprofile.
  • Log in using your ParklandOne credentials.
  • Unlock your profile by clicking the Edit Profile button at the top right of the screen.

  • You will be prompted to re-enter your ParklandOne password (click Verify once entered) and then you will need to satisfy an MFA prompt.

    Okta Profile Edit MultFactor Verification Check

  • The next two sections will explain the process for removing existing factors and/or setting up new MFA factors.
  • **Please note that in order to edit a factor (such as changing your phone number for voice call or SMS), you have to remove the factor first and then set it back up.**


Removing a factor

  • Scroll down the page until you find the Extra Verification section. This is where all of your enrolled and available factors reside.
