More than 7,500 people at U-M used two-factor for Weblogin this tax season, ensuring extra protection for their online W-2s. A number of people, including some of you, have said they would turn on two-factor for Weblogin if it were a bit more convenient. In particular, people want Duo to remember their devices. Well, we heard this loud and clear so…coming May 13: Duo Remember Me!

Duo Remember Me will allow anyone using two-factor for services accessed via the Weblogin page to check a “Remember Me” box at login, and then not be prompted for two-factor via the U-M Weblogin page for 12 hours (using the same device and web browser). This applies to services that require two-factor, as well as other Services and Systems Covered by Two-factor for Weblogin.

Someone who works on one computer, using one browser, without incognito or private browsing windows, would be prompted to use Duo two-factor only once during an average work day. A one-time click for ongoing online protection at U-M? Now that’s something to sign up for! Watch for it May 13 — and thanks for encouraging others to turn-on two-factor for Weblogin.

Using Duo Remember Me

Beginning May 13, you can extend your two-factor authentication to 12 hours for services accessed via the Weblogin page (using the same device and web browser). To bypass the two-factor prompt for 12 hours, you must first check Remember me for 12 hours. This feature requires browser cookies.

Duo interface with "Send me a push" and "Remember me for 12 hours" options selected.

    This feature went live over the weekend! Comments so far are positive. Hope it’s making it more convenient for U-M community to stay secure with two-factor (Duo). Please pass on any experiences — positive or negative — with the new option, documentation etc. to 2FA.project.contact@umich.edu.
