Concerns about Duo? Let us settle them

Here’s hassle-free Two-Step Login with Duo explained.

Cyber thieves are a real threat. They’re the bad guys who want to steal your personal info and hack your bank accounts. And they’re relentless.

That’s why IU has rolled out Two-Step Login ( with Duo to add a second layer of security to your personal data.

Don’t worry. It doesn’t take rocket science to use Duo. Here’s why:

1. You don’t need a smartphone. A tablet, a regular cell phone, or even a landline will do. Most people find the Duo app to be the most convenient, but you've got several options.
2. You don’t need a cell signal. The Duo app works in airplane mode and without Wi-Fi. Just tap the key icon to get a passcode.
3. You won’t have to verify your identity ALL THE TIME. You’ll only have to do that every once in a while, when you log in via a new web browser session. (If you keep your browser open, you may only need to log in once a day on each device.)
4. It helps to have a back-up device. Forgot your phone in the car? No problem. Make sure you register a second, back-up device to avoid getting locked out.
