Duo Multifactor Authentication
Secure Your Campus Login with Another Layer of Protection
Keep your private and confidential information safe with this additional layer of authentication protection. Duo multifactor authentication adds a second layer of protection to CampusID login to prevent unauthorized access to your account. Duo Multifactor Authentication is available for University Faculty, staff and student employees.
What is Duo Multifactor Authentication?
Duo links to your CampusID login and acts as a secondary protective measure, in addition to your CampusID password, to ensure the person logging in is you. Each time you attempt to log in to any campus service protected by Duo, Duo will send a notification to a mobile device or phone associated with your account that you must approve, ensuring that each successful login attempt is being made by you.
What Campus Services are Protected by Duo?
Currently, Duo can protect your OneUSG Connect and Faculty and Staff Office 365 email system accounts, but you must first enable Duo for these accounts.
Why Use Duo Multifactor Authentication?
Duo helps protect your campus accounts from unauthorized access in the event your CampusID password is compromised. Even if your password were guessed or stolen, the attacker would not be able to sign in without authorization using Duo. Duo increases the security of university systems and resources, protecting important sensitive and confidential information.

4. Log In Using Your CampusID with Duo
Once you set up a mobile device or phone to log in with Duo, it may take up to 24 hours before multifactor authentication becomes active for your account. Once Duo multifactor authentication is active, you will be prompted to verify your identity using Duo each time you log in to a Duo-protected service.
When you set up a device to log in with Duo, you can pick from these options to verify your log in attempt:
- Push Notification: Recommended. A notification sent to your mobile device or phone using the Duo app (must be installed) for you to approve or deny your log in attempt. This is the recommended option if you have a mobile device or phone on which you can install the Duo mobile app.
- Phone Call: A computer-generated call to your phone that includes a code for you to enter to approve your log in attempt.
- Passcode: A one-time, randomly-generated code located in the Duo app that you can enter to approve your login attempt. You might choose to use this option if you have the Duo App installed on your device but do not have access to a wireless network or cellular network at the time of login.
Note: We recommend you use Google Chrome, Safari, or Internet Explorer to log in with Duo multifactor authentication. Google Canary is not supported for login with Duo multifactor authentication.
