Students looking to access Duke’s online services and portals are now required to input a second form of verification—such as a code sent to a mobile phone or tablet—in addition to their NetID and password.
Multi-factor authentication -- also known as two-step or two-factor authentication -- provides an extra layer of security by requiring a second method of verifying your identity before granting access to an online service. It ensures that the device you are using is your own. At Duke, multi-factor authentication is required for most online services, including Duke@Work.
Duke uses Duo to provide multi-factor authentication services. When you log in to a site requiring multi-factor authentication, you’ll see the image on this page, which provides the authentication options available to you.
