- All UNetSM Users
Sept. 1, 2022
Effective Sept. 1, any caller who requests access to private information or UNet services from UNOS will use a new identity verification process that utilizes Authy, the same application used for accessing UNet. This added layer of security is part of our ongoing effort to further safeguard protected information.
What you need to do
Please have your Authy authentication device ready when calling UNOS Customer Service or Organ Center.
Upon calling, you must verify your identity in one of 3 ways:
- Approving a push notification sent by UNOS support staff to your Authy application
- Reciting your UNet one-time Passcode from your Authy application over the phone to UNOS support staff
- Reciting a code sent to your primary email address over the phone to UNOS support staff
If you already use Authy to access UNet, you do not need to do anything further at this time. Please note, if you do not have your Authy authentication device available, UNOS support staff will not be able to service your request.
If you have not yet setup Authy for login to UNet or would like to setup a backup device, please refer to the educational materials below.
With the successful implementation of multi-factor authentication for UNet, additional tools are now available to UNOS support staff to validate callers’ identities. UNOS is leveraging the same Authy push notifications and one-time passcodes to quickly validate any caller who requests access to private information or UNet services.
Education and resources
