If you are required to use multi-factor authentication, you will be automatically prompted to enroll the first time you log in to myUMBC.
Follow the steps below for a walkthrough of this process.
3. Next, Duo will ask you to choose a verification option. You can use one of the following, though UMBC recommends using the Duo Mobile app.
Duo Mobile: Use the Duo Mobile App on your mobile device to confirm when you log in (Recommended).
Security Key: Use an external device (connected to a USB port) to confirm when you log in (Not recommended).
Phone Number: Use SMS to confirm when you log in.
Once you enroll a device, you will need to have access to it in order to log into many UMBC resources.
4. If you choose Duo Mobile, you will be asked to provide your mobile phone number.
5. If you entered a phone number, double-check that you entered it correctly and click Yes, it's correct to continue (or No, I need to change it to go back and enter the number again).
|5. Confirm your mobile phone number by entering the passcode send to you by Duo.|
7. Once you have downloaded the app, click Next.

8. In the Duo Mobile app, select 'Use QR code' and scan the code shown in your browser. If you wish, you can click 'Get an activation link instead' to have an email sent to you instead.
10. Duo will now attempt to log you in for the first time. If you are using Duo Mobile, open the app on your phone.
You will see a prompt to confirm your login, as well as:
Confirm that the login is you by tapping the green check button.
11. When asked 'is this your device', if you are not the owner of the computer or device you are using to log in, click 'No, other people use this device'.
If you select 'Yes, this is my device', Duo will skip multi-factor authentication for this device for the next 30 days.
12. You have now completed enrollment and logged in successfully.
The next time you log in to myUMBC, or any other UMBC site that uses webauth, if you selected 'Yes, this is my device', Duo will automatically skip multi-factor authentication.
Otherwise, Duo will prompt you to confirm your login using the same multi-factor method you registered with. For example, if you registered using the mobile app, Duo will prompt you to confirm using the app.
