Duo Two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication is an added security layer for protected resources.  Most online protected resources at the university require you to login with your uniqname and Umich password.  While there are policies in place to enforce the strength and complexity of Umich passwords, we are still relying on users to keep their passwords secure, and change them often in case they end up in the wrong hands.  If your Umich password is stolen, someone can impersonate you by logging into anything to which you have access (including changing your paycheck information in Wolverine Access).  Adding a second authentication check or factor significantly lowers the risk of a thief being able to impersonate you.

The Law School strongly recommends turning on two-factor authentication for all weblogin-protected resources.  Below are links to more information about Duo, as well as how to enroll, and your options for two-factor devices.
