Duo Security FAQ

What is Duo Security?

Duo Security is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) service. 

All faculty, staff, students, and retirees are required to use Duo Security. 

Duo adds a layer of security by requiring you to have physical access your smartphone or code generator when you try to access your account with your password. Without access to your smartphone or code generator, an intruder is unable to access your account.

Your Bucknell password will not expire because you are using Duo to provide an extra level of security for your account.

Duo Security can be setup on multiple devices (such as tablets) and each user should have more than one device set up. Users can select to receive 10 single use passcodes to your cell phone via text. You may choose to write down your passcodes for use when you are not near your phone. If you do please keep these codes in a secure location.

Students Only: Duo SOS

How do I access Bucknell resources if I lose access to Duo? Students only! If you lose your phone, you can request a one-time emergency passcode.

Note: Duo Security does not work in any country or region subject to U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions.
