Who is it for?

Duo is now available to anyone with an OSU Login.

Why should I use it?

Strong passwords are essential, but they aren't enough. Phishing attacks and data breaches put your account at risk. Duo provides extra security for your OSU Account with two-step login.

As an incentive, once you sign up for Duo you can change your password one last time and then keep it as long as you'd like.  No more mandatory annual password changes!


Two-step Login

With two-step login, anyone trying to access your account must provide two forms of ID:

  • Something you know, such as your password.
  • Something you have, such as a passcode, a phone, or even a mobile app.

Some services and websites refer to this as two-step authentication, two-step verification, multifactor authentication, or login verification.

The difference between the "normal" OSU login screen and the two-step login screen is shown here.
