Duo Security multi-factor authentication for staff and faculty is now in effect for University applications such as myBoiseState, G Suite, Blackboard, Zoom web client, Campus Solutions, and Bronco Hub. Authentication is required for faculty and staff logging in from a location off-campus or without first connecting to VPN.
Authentication will be required on campus for faculty and staff beginning July 8.
Boise State partners with Duo Security to provide multi-factor authentication. This service may also be referred to as “Duo.”
Multi-factor authentication adds another layer of security to our systems. It requires you to verify your identity using another method (like your mobile device) to prevent anyone else from logging into your accounts, even if they know your password.
How does it work?
- If you haven’t yet enrolled, watch for an email from Duo Security with the subject, “Duo Security Enrollment.” This email is legitimate and contains a link to enroll your phone, tablet, or other device. The email looks like this:
- When you receive the email, click the link and follow the instructions to enroll. Enrollment is easy and step-by-step instructions (including a video demonstrating the process) are available in Duo’s online enrollment guide.
