In an effort to increase the security of your personal identity and data, as well as the university's data, all UNO students, faculty and staff will be required to use Two-Factor Authentication by Duo. Two-Factor will be required to access web-based university services, such as Canvas, Box, MavLINK and email.
The deadline to enroll in Two-Factor is Monday, Oct. 5.
Between Oct. 5-9, a subset of students, faculty and staff who have not yet enrolled in Two-Factor will automatically be enrolled each day depending on the first letter of their last name.
Why wait until October to protect your accounts? Enroll in Two-Factor today at trueyou.nebraska.edu.
The university is beginning to require Two-Factor because cyberattacks targeting UNO faculty, staff and students are an ongoing threat. In 2018, 81% of cyberattacks were executed by taking advantage of weak or stolen passwords. Two-Factor Authentication is the best way to mitigate attacks on weak or stolen passwords.
How do I use Two-Factor Authentication?
Visit https://trueyou.nebraska.edu/ to enroll.
You can use Two-Factor in a number of ways. Choose the authentication method that is most convenient for you on the device of your choice.
After you’ve entered your credentials, a second factor of authentication will be sent to you by whichever method you chose during your Two-Factor enrollment.
After approving the second factor, you’ll be logged in.
The university’s Two-Factor Authentication is provided by Duo. So, if you're already using the Duo app to log in to your services, that means you're already enrolled in Two-Factor.
For more information about Two-Factor, including FAQ’s, video tutorials and instructions on how to register, visit its.nebraska.edu/two-factor.
