Use Two-Factor Authentication (Duo)

U-M uses Duo two-factor authentication for login security to protect the university and you. Two-factor is:

  • Required for access to many U-M systems and departmental services.
  • Available for you to turn on for Weblogin to add protection to your information in Wolverine access, U-M Google account, and more.

To better protect university systems and data—and your personal information—use of two-factor is being expanded. Two-factor for Weblogin will be required of Michigan Medicine employees and sponsored affiliates beginning October 10, 2018.

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.
