The Okta Dashboard is where you'll find UW-Parkside applications that require multifactor authentication. Over time, you will be able to open frequently used applications directly from the Okta dashboard without having to sign into them separately.
The New Sign On Notification email is sent when Okta identifies that a new device or browser is being used to sign into your UW-Parkside user account.

[NO] The notification you receive from Okta has the relative location of the device requesting identity authentication. Okta does not draw data from your phone for this purpose.
The contents of strictly personal communications (texts, emails, voice messages) or data are not subject to the Wisconsin Public Records Law simply by using the app to verify your identity. Strictly personal means that it is not related to university business. If you were using your personal device to conduct university business (such as responding to emails, texting a colleague about a work-related issue or leaving or receiving voice messages on work-related subjects, or accessing university digital assets) those communications which relate to the university business could be subject to the Wisconsin Public Records Law or could be the subject of a university-related subpoena. The contents of your personal communications that do NOT involve university business would not be subject to the Wisconsin Public Records law or to a university-related subpoena for university business records.
