Duo is a Multi-Factor Authenticator (MFA) that adds a second layer of security to your NetID account. Verifying your identity using Duo (with your phone or other mobile devices) prevents unauthorized access to an account even if the password has been compromised/stolen. DUO enrollment is a required process to begin using DUO protected services. DUO enrollment can be performed via the DUO Device Management Portal(DMP linked below). Successful use of MFA is dependent on having the device on you. If you do not have access to the device and are unable to complete authentication when prompted, access will be denied.

When you log into a system that requires DUO authentication your phone will send you a push notification for approval. The push is the easiest way to authenticate with DUO. Here is a quick video demonstration of the DUO push https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN0Hj0pKZ7U
