Indiana University Introduces Two-Step Login (Duo)
Email and online scams (phishing attacks) are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Two-step login (Duo), also known as two-factor authentication, adds a second layer of security when you log into secure systems. It combines an additional verification with your username and passphrase, and helps prevent anyone but you from logging in.
At Indiana University, Two-step login (Duo) adds this second layer of security for some university systems, and also for your personal information and financial data (Bursar direct deposit, for example). The Duo Mobile app for smartphones or tablets is recommended, but if you don't have such a device, regular cell phones and landlines are also supported. For step-by-step instructions for the various ways to begin, see Getting started with Two-step login (Duo) at IU.
