How do I manage my 2FA devices?

Device management allows you to easily edit and add new 2FA devices as well as set up a recovery email address in the event you forget or lose your 2FA device.

Visit NetID Center -> Select Log in

You will need to login with NetID and password and authenticate with 2FA.

Select the Set up 2FA button

By selecting the plus icon to the right of your device, you can select a favorite/default device, rename, delete or reactivate Duo Mobile App if applicable.

Setting a Favorite or Default device

If you authenticate with more than one device, you can specify the default by selecting the blue star icon. NOTE: You can now make your token your default device.

Reactivating the Duo Mobile App on your mobile device

Click the Reactivate Duo Mobile App button if you need to get Duo Push working on your existing phone or a new phone (replaced your phone with a new model but kept the same number). After answering a few questions, you will receive a new bar code to scan with your phone, which will complete the activation process. You will be required to authenticate using 2FA before reactivating. You will not be able to use Duo Push, but you can authenticate with a phone call or text message.

Ask me how to authenticate - When authenticating with 2FA, you will be presented with the choice of how to authenticate (phone call, push, text, or passcode) when applicable. Available for smartphone, tablet, cellular phone, and landline phone.
 
Automatically call - When authenticating with 2FA, the system will automatically call your default device for authentication. Available for smartphone, tablet, cellular phone, and landline phone. This can be canceled by selecting cancel this call on the authentication screen and then you can select another method.
 
Automatically Duo Push - When authenticating with 2FA, the system will automatically send a duo push to your default device for authentication. Available for smartphone and tablets. This can be canceled by selecting cancel this push on the authentication screen and then you can select another method.
 
Logging in without your device: use a recovery email address
It is recommended that all users set up a non-university email address to receive a temporary passcode if you forget or lose your device. You can receive 24 codes a year and they are good for 3 days (100 authentications).

  2. Select Log in
  3. Under Recovery Settings, Select Edit settings
  4. Add or update the Non-university email address
