Duo is a dual-authentication system that insures that your most sensitive data stays private. This means that you will have to log in to a computer as well as have a phone nearby so that you can also indicate, on the phone, that it’s you logging into systems utilizing DUO.
Ways to authenticate
- Push - Authenticate through the DUO app on your phone or tablet. You will receive a message to allow the authentication which you can accept.
- Phone - DUO will call a number you enter. Once you receive the phone call you can allow authentication.
- Passcode - Use the DUO app to generate a passcode which can be entered into DUO to allow authentication. No cell service is needed for this which is useful when traveling overseas.
