Duo Two Factor Authentication

The What:

Beginning in January 2020 students will be required to enroll in Duo Two Factor Authentication (2FA). We encourage you to enroll now to protect your digital assets.

2FA requires a secondary proof of identity when logging in to certain systems. This may take the form of the following options

  • Duo app 
  • Text message
  • Hardware token
  • YubiKey 

(The Hardware token and YubiKey are free of charge to students and available at Computer Showcase)

 

The Why:

Duo Two Factor Authentication helps protect university systems as well as your personal data. If an attacker steals your username and password, they would remain unable to access your information thanks to 2FA.
