Re-enroling Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) provides an additional layer of security to an NHSmail account when signing into NHSmail via a web browser. If a user wants to register a new mobile number for MFA, Local Administrators must reset MFA settings for them. Once MFA has been reset for a user, they can register for MFA with a new mobile number. For more information please refer to Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)


Mobile numbers used to register for an NHSmail account must be UK based. Any NHSmail account registered with non-UK number will be disabled and will need to contact their local organisation to apply a UK based phone number to their NHSmail account. Please see Information – Non-UK registered Phone Numbers for more information
