What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication adds a second layer of security to your online accounts. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.  

 It requires two forms of verification to confirm your identity when you are off campus only: 

  • Your login, as normal 
  • Duo mobile app, phone call, or text
