Use Duo when traveling

FacebooktwitterredditlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterredditlinkedinmail1

Don’t let travel plans interrupt the protections provided by Duo. Duo offers multiple options to help you complete two-factor authentication when traveling. You may be able to use your regular Duo two-factor option, or you may need to use an alternative, depending on your travel plans.

The recommended travel option is the Duo Mobile app on a smartphone or tablet because it can provide a passcode without a cellular or WiFi connection. As long as your device has power, you can use the app to get a passcode.

Duo support materials and resources for unit IT staff

Unit IT support materials and tips, like the ones included above, can be found in the Duo@Weblogin Communication Resources toolkit. Emails were sent to UM-Ann Arbor IT staff informing them that the Ann Arbor campus will be turning on two-factor (Duo) for Weblogin for all faculty, staff, and sponsored affiliates in mid-January. UM-Dearborn is also scheduled to turn on two-factor in January, while Michigan Medicine is turning on two-factor for all employees and sponsored affiliates with a Level-2 password on October 10.

More resources and support materials will be added to the toolkit in the coming days and weeks. Questions about the Turn on Two-Factor for Weblogin campaign, which begins October 1, should be directed to Duo-Feedback@umich.edu.
