Using the Duo Mobile app on your mobile device as a security token is the most convenient way to complete authentication. The app offers two authentication methods:

  • Duo Push – it is the quickest way to authenticate your identity with a single tap on your mobile device
  • Passcode – it does not require network connection, making it ideal when there is no Internet connection on your mobile device or when you are travelling

     

    When you log in a system/service covered by Duo, you can choose the authentication method on the Duo login authentication page.
