Duo Mobile and Respondus (Two-Factor Authentication)

Duo Mobile is the recommended two-step verification method for Respondus. It is the only two-step verification option that can be used if you do not have cellphone service in your location when you need to log in.

Install the Duo Mobile app on your Android or iOS phone or other device in order to receive Duo Push notifications. Through the app, you tap and approve or generate single-use verification codes to enter in your browser.

Please consult the Two-Step Verification: detailed instructions for information on how to install the Duo Mobile app on your device.
