Did you know?

Duo MFA offers multiple types of second factor authentication so you can choose the one that’s most convenient for you.

Push notification

When you install the Duo app on your device it sends you a notification whenever there is an attempt to log in to an MFA-protected service with your username and password. According to the latest two-factor authentication statistics, this is the most common method.

One-time password

This is a six-digit code generated in the Duo app. The app constantly swaps new codes in sync with the internal server clock. This method works offline and may be accessed by installing the Duo app on your device.

SMS code

This is like the one-time password method, but the code is sent as a text message to your phone. This method requires a texting plan on your device.

Phone call to a number 

You can also use a landline for authenticating.  However, keep in mind that you would have to change your authentication number if you are away from your landline.  Using your work phone requires either being on campus, call forwarding or a soft phone setup like Jabber.

Opt-in to MFA to be entered to win 

Using multi-factor authentication (MFA) is essential to keep our systems as secure as possible. If you haven’t already, please take the time to opt-in to MFA with Duo today. For more information, visit 

Note: You do not need to opt-in if you are already using Duo MFA for any university service. Duo MFA is available to all faculty, staff, and students.
