Enroll in Duo From Your Mobile Device


Duo's 2FA program integrates an additional level of security of your UCO accounts by requiring an additional level of authentication beyond your username and password. The Duo Mobile app is a free smartphone and tablet application that syncs with your UCO two-factor authentication (2FA) account to complete the authentication process. The program provides you with a secondary means of confirming your identity via mobile device, tablet or an authentication token, which you will use every time that you sign into any of the services accessed through UCO's single sign-on (SSO).


  • Provides Faculty and Staff with a secondary means of confirming your identity.
  • The additional layer of security provides valuable protection to your account and personal information. Even if your password is compromised, no one will be able to access your account without also having your secondary authentication.
  • 2FA protects against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.
  • Duo's 2FA solution only requires your users to carry one device - their smartphone, with the Duo Mobile App installed on it. Duo Mobile is available for both iPhones and Android, as well as wearables like Apple Watch.
  • Minimum iOS requirements are available on the DUO website.
  • Minimum Android requirements are available on the DUO website.
