Turn On Two-Factor for Weblogin

Turn on Two-Factor for Weblogin Now  
All current faculty, staff, student employees, and sponsored affiliates will be required to use two-factor (Duo) authentication starting Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Don't be caught unprepared. If you haven't already, turn on two-factor today. Retirees, alumni, and students are encouraged to turn it on for added security.

U-M uses Duo two-factor authentication for login security to protect the university and you. We recommend that you enroll in a primary option plus a backup. Many people use the app on their smartphone as their primary method and enroll the landline at their desk as a backup.

First, Choose Your Duo Option

Most people find using the app on a smartphone—either to receive a "push" notification or to generate a passcode—to be most convenient. Other options include phone calls to your cell phone or landline, passcodes sent to you via text message, or a hardware token (available for purchase). See:

Second, Enroll in Duo and Turn it On for Weblogin

Follow the instructions for the options you selected. If you aren't sure, enroll in several options and try them out to see what works best for you.

Third, Use Duo When Logging In

When two-factor authentication is required for access to a system or service, you'll be prompted for it when logging in. See:

  • Using Duo Two-Factor to Log In. View examples of the different methods used to log in, including the common Weblogin interface, SSH clients, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
  • How-to Videos. Watch short videos that show how to use the differerent methods used to log in.
Note: Duo collects the minimum amount of information needed to provide the authentication service. See the Duo Privacy Policy for more information.
