Turn On Two-Factor for Weblogin

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.

Two-factor for Weblogin will be required starting January 23, 2019, for all faculty, staff (including student employees), and sponsored affiliates on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses.

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:

Note: Duo collects the minimum amount of information needed to provide the authentication service. See the Duo Privacy Policy for more information.
