Authentication: BrowserID / Persona
|new in Mahara 16.10| :index:`Persona <single: New in Mahara 16.10; Migrate Persona accounts>` authentication is `discontinued <>`_ as at 30 November 2016. Nobody is able to use that authentication anymore.
When you upgrade to Mahara 16.10, Persona authentication will be deactivated, and you cannot re-activate it anymore. You can automatically migrate all accounts that use Persona to internal authentication.

Migrate Persona accounts to internal authentication
#. **Institution**: The institutions that use Persona authentication are listed.
#. **Number of active Persona users**: A list of all users that have Persona. The link takes you to the :ref:`user search page <user_search>` and displays only the users with Persona.
#. **Auto-migrate Persona users**: Switch to "Yes" if you want to migrate all users to internal authentication that have been using Persona authentication. If you don't do that, they will not be able to log in.
.. note::
If an institution does not have an internal authentication set, one will be created so that the users can be moved.
You will need to inform the users that used Persona as their login to reset their password as no email is sent with the account details. They should go to the :ref:`"Lost username / password" screen <login>` and enter the email address of their Persona account in order to retrieve their username and password.
