If you have or use an FMCSA Portal account, you must act now to maintain access.
How you log on to the FMCSA Portal is changing to ensure enhanced security and compliance with the Federal Mandate for Multifactor Authentication.
Starting December 1, 2023, users will access the FMCSA Portal through a Login.Gov account instead of using your current FMCSA Portal username and password.
To ensure access to the FMCSA Portal, you must set up a Login.gov account by Dec. 1, 2023.
The Federal Cybersecurity plan under White House Executive Order 14028, Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, and Office of Budget Memorandum M-22-09, Moving the U.S. Government Toward Zero Trust Cybersecurity Principles (Federal Zero Trust Strategy) requires all Federal agencies to adopt secure Multifactor Authentication (MFA) to enhance information security by Dec. 31, 2023.
Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is a method to verify your identity requiring two or more pieces of evidence (factors). These factors can be something you know (like a password), something you have (like an access card) or something you are (like facial recognition or fingerprint).
