Dukeblue: Getting connected on Android devices

Duke University has implemented a secure wireless network known as Dukeblue which uses the authentication mechanism WPA-2 Enterprise and 802.1X. When correctly installed and configured, this network can protect your Duke NetID and password, and ensure your data and transactions are secure and protected.

In order to connect to the secure network, adjustments will need to be made to your device settings. Follow these steps to configure your Dukeblue connection for your Android device so you can take advantage of this layer of security. NOTE: Some Android devices may require a four digit security pin after installing the Dukeblue certificate.

1. Delete any previously downloaded JoinNow MultiOS (SecureW2) app from your device.

2. Forget/delete the Dukeblue wireless network.

3. Connect to DukeOpen (if registered) or DukeVisitor.

4. Go to this URL from web browser:  https://dukeblue.duke.edu

5. Click the yellow box that says JOIN DUKEBLUE.

6. Click the download button to download the App.

7. Click Install to install the App (but do not open the App)

8. Press the home button to exit the screen and return to the web browser that should still have the initial download screen up.

9. Press the JoinNow button in the web browser link (Android v11: the JoinNow app may have to be manually opened.)

10. Enter NetId and password

11. This should install Dukeblue (follow any instructions presented and do not remove the JoinNow App because it will delete the Dukeblue connection).


The instructions may vary slightly depending upon your specific OS version.
