Duo hardware token enrollment

Please read carefully.

Duo is a Multi-Factor Authentication system that adds an extra level of account security by requiring users to verify themselves when they login to any of UCI's websites or online services that uses a UCInetID and password. This added security feature, ensures that no-one but the owner of the account has access to it. 

There are two choices available. The first the software token. In short, you will register a mobile device such as a cellphone that you will use to verify yourself, with the tap of a button, during login. The second choice is a hardware token. A hardware token is a small device that you will need to carry on a key chain which requires you to enter a 6-digit number, which can be found on the device, upon logging in. 

If you would like to use a hardware token, please contact your helpdesk@eng.uci.edu or purchasing manager to place an order for the device.
