NIH eRA Commons Modules Will Require Two-Factor Authentication

Although not required until September 15, 2021, the National Institutes of Health is encouraging users of eRA Commons, ASSIST, Internet Assisted Review (IAR), and Commons Mobile to begin their switchover to the new two-factor authentication (2FA) login method (via login.gov) to access eRA modules.

Using login.gov 2FA will be required as of the deadline of September 15, 2021 for all users. The authentication will help ensure the security of personal and confidential information in these systems.
