MultiFactor Authentication Instructions for Enrolling a Device
This article contains instructions on how to register or enroll a Multifactor device for authenticating identity when using VPN.
The device enrollment process makes it easy to register a phone and install the Duo Mobile application on a smartphone or tablet.
You will be prompted to enroll via an email received from Duo (Yale's Multfactor Authentication Solution). Click the link in the email to begin the registration/enrollment process.
Click "Start Setup" to begin the enrollment process.
2.Choose the type of device to register
We recommend using a smartphone if you have one. Click the authentication device you are enrolling, click "Continue".
3.Type the Phone Number
Select your country.
Type your phone number. Use the number of a smartphone, landline, or cell phone that you will have with you when logging in. You can enter an extension if you chose "Landline" in the previous step.
Then double-check that the number is entered correctly, "check" the box, and click "Continue".
Choose the operating system that your phone runs, and click "Continue".
5.Install Duo Mobile
Duo Mobile is an application that runs on your phone and helps you authenticate. Without it you will still be able to log in using a phone call or text message, but Duo strongly recommends the use of the Duo Mobile app to authenticate quickly and easily.
Follow the platform-specific instructions on the screen to install Duo Mobile.
6.Activate Duo Mobile
Activating the application will link it to your account so you can use it for authentication.
On iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry 10, activate Duo Mobile by scanning the barcode with the built-in barcode scanner.
The "Continue" button will be clickable after you scans the barcode.
Can't scan the barcode? Click the link and then follow the instructions.
Click "Enroll another device" to add another device (backup phone, etc.), or click "I'm done enrolling devices" to continue to the authentication prompt.
If enabled by an administrator, you can manage your devices via the authentication prompt. Otherwise, you will need to contact your administrator if you ever need to change your phone number, re-activate Duo Mobile, or add a second phone.
