- First you'll register a mobile phone, tablet, desk phone or small hardware token. Instructions: Getting Started with Two-Step Login (Duo).
- Within a day, two-step login will go into effect for your Duck ID account.
- From that point on, when you log in to certain UO services, Duo will prompt you to confirm your identity using the device you've registered.
- Using the Remember me for 7 days option, most people will only have to do that verification step once per week for most UO services (per browser or app, per device).
- Universities around the world, including the UO, are high-priority targets for hackers. An example is the phishing attack of August 2018. Those attacks have only increased during the COVID-19 outbreak.
- Stolen UO credentials can be leveraged to gain unauthorized access to personal information, research data, and intellectual property.
- Multi-factor authentication blocks almost 100% of attacks based on credential theft, according to research by Google and Microsoft.
- Two-step login protects your account wherever you are, whether on campus, at home, or on the road.
- As of July 29, 2020, all UO faculty, staff, and graduate employees must use Duo to access any protected UO services.
- Faculty, staff, and GEs who haven't yet enrolled in Duo will be prompted to do so the next time they try to log in to a protected service.
- Alternatively, they can follow the instructions at Getting Started with Two-Step Login to register a device.
- Emeritus faculty and retired staff aren't required to enroll in Duo at this time.
- Enrollment for student employees is currently voluntary but encouraged.
- For students who aren't UO employees, Duo isn't yet available.
- Students will be required to enroll in Duo in a future phase of this rollout.
