What You Need to Know about 2FA
WMU has joined the many universities that use two-factor authentication (2FA) to protect students, faculty, and staff from data and privacy violations. 2FA adds an extra layer of security by sending a notification to your mobile device when you log in so that you may verify that it is you logging in and not a criminal.

Top Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to use 2FA every time I log in?
No! We highly recommend you use the Remember Me option when logging in, which will allow you to be remembered on that device (using the same internet browser) for 30 days. This means you will only need to use 2FA to log in once per month on each of your devices.
What if I replace my smartphone?
You can reactivate Duo Mobile on your new device by using the Duo Device Management Portal. Please visit our 2FA Device Management page for instructions.
What if my phone is lost or not available?
If you do not have access to your smartphone, you can still access your WMU account. Please see our 2FA backup options page to prepare yourself.
