Note: Be sure to complete both Step 1 and Step 2 or your account will not work correctly.

Step 1: Activate your account

Activate Your Account

Step 2: Register for Duo

Two-factor authentication with Duo is required for all AU systems that can be accessed from off-campus and several accessed on-campus. You must register a mobile phone number, tablet, or land-line with Duo before you can log into any systems. Remember, you will need to have the device with you when you try to log into an AU system. We recommend you register a number or device you will have access to at all times.

Watch a video or read step-by-step instructions on how to register.

Step 3: Get started!

Now that your account is activated, your password is set, and you have registered for Duo, you are ready to go! Below are some Quick Start Guides that will help you with your next steps. If you have questions or need further assistance, please contact one of the Help Desk locations.  


Optional Step 4: International Travel 

Before traveling outside of the United States you must first request an International Travel Exemption to continue your use of DUO. Requesting this exemption allows the Division of Information Technology to protect both your data and your device. DUO login requests from outside of the United States will be blocked without a Travel Exemption.
