U-M uses Duo two-factor authentication for login security to protect the university and you.
- Duo is already required for access to specified U-M systems and some departmental services.
- It has been required with Weblogin for employees and sponsored affiliates of Michigan Medicine since October 2018.
- It will be required with Weblogin for employees and sponsored afiliates at UM-Ann Arbor, UM-Dearborn, and UM-Flint beginning January 23, 2019.
- It will not be required of retirees, alumni, or students at this time, although they are welcome and encouraged to turn it on for Weblogin to add protection to their information in Wolverine access, U-M Google account, and more. (Retirees, alumni, and students who also have an employee or sponsored affiliation with the university, as well as emeritus faculty, will be required to use Duo.)
What is Two-Factor?
Two-factor means that when you log in, you provide two proofs of your identity. At U-M, that means your password plus Duo. You can choose from multiple Duo options. An attacker who gets your password won't be able to log in as you without your Duo option.
