Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) - DUO Request

Service Description

Multi-factor authentication (MFA), sometimes called two-factor authentication, requires the use of a physical device in addition to a password when logging into an account. Without both factors – the device and the password – you cannot login. This makes a stolen password alone effectively worthless.

A mobile device or designated FOB device is required for this service.
