This year, Augsburg has committed to improving its cyber-security awareness in an effort to protect against cyber threats and to protect your data. As part of this initiative, Augsburg is implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

Starting December 21st, Multi-Factor Authentication, using Duo, will be required for online services using Inside Augsburg for the login. These include tools like email, Moodle, Zoom, and more. Since this is a noticeable change to how you access your Augsburg online tools, we encourage you to opt-in to using Duo before December 21st..

To do so, please take the following steps…
