Enhance the security to your personal information. Enroll now with Duo.

Enhance the security of your personal information, and reduce the impact of phishing by enrolling in the two-factor authentication method named Duo. Duo adds a second layer of security to your online accounts. Duo is configured and in use with Workday, Google, Concur and UProcure (just to name a few) and works with UCAR's Active Directory (CIT password) solution.

Duo can be used via a smartphone application, a callback to any phone number, or Yubikey. The most convenient method is to use the Duo smartphone application. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) prevents anyone but you from logging in to UCAR Duo enrolled applications, even if they know your CIT password.

To get started, send an email to cislhelp@ucar.edu requesting enrollment in Duo. The Help Desk will be in contact with you via phone or email to complete your enrollment.

Information and presentations about Duo can be found at this web address: Duo information

Additional information about UCAR application authentication methods can be found here: UCAR User Authentication (login required; identifies which services use Duo and which use other authentication methods)
