Duo - Authenticating with Duo

Duo is UWM's multi-factor authentication service, which adds second layer of security to your online accounts. Two-factor authentication provides an additional level of assurance by requiring something you know (your password) and something you have (your device).

When accessing a UWM service or application that requires multi-factor authentication, you will be prompted to log in with your ePanther credentials and then verify your identity with a device that has been enrolled in Duo.

Please watch the below video for an overview of Duo:



The Duo prompt lets you choose how to verify your identity each time you log in, which can be done via:
Additionally, when logging into a Duo protected service or application or the UWM Duo Self-Service page, you can check the Remember me for 12 hours box on the Duo Prompt screen:



After checking the box, you won't need to perform Duo second-factor authentication again for 12 hours per application (note: 1Login web-based applications are counted as one application).



Authenticating with a Duo Mobile Push notification

Duo can push a login request to your phone or tablet. After entering your ePanther ID and password to log in to a Duo protected application or service, click Send Me a Push on the Duo Prompt screen:



Just review the request on your iOS or Android device and tap Approve to log in:



Authenticating with a Duo Mobile Passcode

You can also authenticate with a passcode that is generated by the Duo Mobile app on your iOS or Android device. Because this method is time-based, it is particularly useful if you are traveling with no internet access on your device. On your iOS or Android device, open the Duo Mobile app and click the arrow icon next to your University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee account to show the current passcode:



After entering your ePanther ID and password to log in to a Duo protected application or service, click Enter a Passcode in the Duo Prompt screen:



Enter the passcode in the text box and click Log In:
