Introduction

This page provides instructions for getting started with Duo, UO's two-step login service.

Don't know what Duo does? Let the Duck explain:

How to Enroll in Duo

1) Choose which device(s) to register with Duo and have them available

  • For most people, this will include a smartphone.
  • All supported devices are described in detail in this related article.

2) Register your device(s)

For all types of phones and tablets:

  • Visit Duck ID Self-Service, select Manage Your Duck ID, and log in
  • Click the Manage Two-Step Login Devices link
  • Click the Start setup button to be guided through the process of registering your first device
  • You can then register additional devices by clicking the + Add another device link (recommended)

For hardware tokens:

3) It's that easy — You're enrolled!

When Duo goes into effect for your account, you'll start seeing prompts to confirm your identity with your device when accessing protected services.

4) Register a backup device (optional)

  • We recommend registering at least two devices so that you have a backup method in case your main device is unavailable.
  • The registration instructions are the same as above, with one exception: After your first device has been registered, you'll be required to complete the Duo prompt to change your Duo settings in Duck ID Self-Service.
  • Don't have a second device? If you're using the Duo Mobile app, it has a built in backup! You can write down passcodes and use them later, even if your device doesn't have service or isn't available.
