Reminder: Campus will begin enrolling students in Duo on Feb. 9

Starting Feb. 9, 2021, UC Davis will begin enrolling students in Duo automatically, after emailing them information about what to expect.

Duo multi-factor authentication (MFA) protects your online life much like a deadbolt secures a door. When you log in to an account protected by Duo, after you enter your usual password, Duo asks you for a second “factor”—typically a temporary code that Duo displays on your smartphone. Accept the code, and you’re in. Hackers who don’t have the second factor cannot get into your account.

UC Davis faculty, staff, and student employees are already enrolled in Duo, fulfilling a campus goal of applying MFA throughout UC Davis.
