Duo Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) required for Canvas as of May 5.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

You will need your phone (or other Duo-enabled device) with you to log into Canvas and access course materials—including timed, in-class exams.

Duo will push a notification to your phone asking you to approve or deny access each time you login to Canvas. Once you verify your identity on your phone with Duo, you’ll be securely logged into Canvas. 

Time-saving security tips from OIS

The Office of Information Security recommends you follow the time-saving security tips below.

Choose “Send Me a Push” in the Duo Mobile App for the quickest, most user-friendly experience.

Duo authentication screen

Use “Remember me” to log into Canvas with Duo once a month (instead of…Every. Single. Time.)

Selecting the “Remember me” checkbox tells Duo to send you one authentication request for Canvas every thirty days. Duo’s “Remember me” feature is device and browser specific. So, if you need to use another device or browser to log into Canvas, you’ll need to check the “Remember me” box again.

Keep your phone with you in case you need to log into Canvas and access course materials—including timed, in-class exams. If you forget your phone or have trouble logging into Canvas with Duo, please contact your instructor.
