MFA Login as a User

The experience for users who must use Duo multi-factor authentication (MFA) to login is slightly different than the traditional style of username and password entry that they are probably accustomed to.

Although not drastically different, the following procedure must be performed by every user whose account is configured to use Duo MFA in Access Manager.

In order to use Duo MFA, you will need to download and install the Duo Mobile app to your device.

Please do this before continuing.
