Seven days left until you need Two-Step Login for IU logins and SSL VPN
Don't get locked out on February 2. Two-Step Login will soon be required.
In just a week, faculty, staff, student employees, affiliates, and anyone using SSL VPN (Pulse Secure) will need Two-Step Login (Duo) to access key IU services.
If you haven't already enrolled, do it now to avoid disruptions.
How the SSL VPN process is different: To log into an IU VPN via the Pulse Secure client, you’ll enter your username and passphrase as usual. Then, you'll need to type a specific command to tell Duo what device to use. Get the list of commands, along with step-by-step instructions, here.
