Duo Two-Factor Authentication
The Duo Mobile user interface was recently redesigned to make the login experience better and user friendly. Learn more about the upcoming change.
Brandeis has enabled two-factor authentication using the Duo service. Two-factor authentication serves as an extra layer of security designed to prevent unauthorized access to your account and personal information. Duo protects your Brandeis account by requiring two forms of authentication to verify your identity when logging into Brandeis services:
- Something you know: your Brandeis username and password
- Something you have: a physical device (such as mobile phone, tablet, or landline phone
After you have enrolled in Duo two-factor authentication, you will need the following to log-in to Brandeis systems and services:
- Your Brandeis Username and Password.
- A physical device you control such as a mobile phone, tablet, or landline phone to verify or authenticate your account.
