Use this page to request access to groups of which you want to be a member and applications that you want to use.
Use this page to enroll in Multi–Factor Authentication (MFA) in Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
When you sign in to Oracle Identity Cloud Service, you’re prompted for your user name and password, which is the first factor. You’re then required to provide a second type of verification. This is called 2-Step Verification. The two factors work together to add an additional layer of security in Oracle Identity Cloud Service by using either additional information or a second device to verify your identity and complete the login process.
See Manage 2-Step Verification from the My Profile Console for more information about the 2–Step Verification page.
