login DUO


DUO is a multi-factor authentication system we call the 2-Step authentication process.  This is occurring on each campus in adherence to UW System Security requirements. Our goal is to keep you and your data Safe and Secure. Using the DUO system will help prevent computer hacking of your data because of comprised passwords. There will be a number of tools available to authenticate when using the DUO System. The recommended solution is to use the free Duo Mobile app for your smartphone to confirm your identity, which is generally the easiest option. You may consider using a fob, which generates a random pass code you type in when prompted. A fob is a small, programmable hardware device which provides log-in access [see image]. ITS will show you how to use these tools, and some individuals may want to use both a smart phone and a fob. These new security measures will help keep your login information safe, and protect high risk data.

  • You can install Duo Mobile from the App Store or Google Play Store 

  • To get Duo set up, follow the instructions for first-time use that appear upon signing into WINGS for the first time. 

  • The easiest way to use Duo is to select "Send Me a Push".  


  • You will then need to accept the sign-in attempt within the app on your phone, and WINGS will let you in.

    Another way is you can choose "Enter a passcode", this passcode will show on your Fob or your DUO app on your phone. When you typed the passcode, you can login to WINGS or other websites which requires DUO authentication
