This is a reminder that the use of Duo Mobile will be expanding to Inside Augsburg for current faculty and staff the week of June 6th. The requirement will be staggered throughout the week to different groups of people.
We recommend you register your Duo Mobile app as soon as possible to prevent interruption to online services like gmail or moodle.
1. Install Duo Mobile from your phone’s app store.
2. On your laptop/computer, visit https://duo.augsburg.edu and click on Enrollment and Device Management to start the enrollment process. Follow the instructions on the page.
3. The instructions will help you register your Duo Mobile app.
Duo Mobile is a tool to provide multi-factor authentication to online logins. These days phishing attacks (when someone tricks you into sharing your password) are the main way ransomware and data breaches start at organizations. These attacks can cost organizations hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars to clean up. And organizations can be offline for days during the cleanup.
Multi-factor authentication provides you additional protection beyond your password. At least once a week you will need to approve your Inside Augsburg login using the Duo Mobile app.
