Duo: Setting up MFA

  • How do I sign up for Duo?

  • How do I configure Duo?


Duo authenticates your login by sending a notification to your mobile device through their secure application. The Duo Mobile application is available for iOS and Android devices.

As part of our effort to better protect the users and data at Dakota State, ITS has applied Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to all of our systems. DUO was chosen as the preferred solution because it offers a user-friendly experience and has excellent technical support.

DUO MFA is mandatory for all faculty and staff in the SDBOR system.
