Enrolling with Duo for Two-factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security for UNF applications designed to ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows your password.

 

The University requires two-factor authentication for most applications. The purpose of two-factor authentication is to protect your UNF account and personal information. It adds a quick and easy step to the login process. After entering your UNF ID and password, it requires you to validate your identity by responding to a prompt using a second factor such as a mobile device.

Registering a device:

  1. Start by downloading the Duo Mobile app from your device's application store and installing it.
  2. Go to https://mfa.unf.edu
  3. You will see a UNF login page. Enter your username (N number) and password.
  4. A Duo window will display. Select the green "Start Setup" button to enroll.
