Office 365 Duo multi-factor authentication launches Sept. 8 

Students who have registered for Duo will begin receiving Duo authentication prompts when logging in to Office 365 web applications on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 8 a.m. This applies to student accounts while away from campus and when accessing via a web browser. 

Those who have not yet registered will be presented with Duo self-registration when accessing Office 365. Register early to avoid disruptions to your Office 365 access. 

What is multi-factor authentication? 

  • Multi-factor authentication provides a strong second layer of security when used in conjunction with usernames and passwords. MFA requires an additional mobile application, available for iPhone and Android smartphones. If you don’t have a smartphone, alternative options are available. 

Why the change? 

  • Phishing and other scams attempt to get credentials and use them to access university systems, putting information at risk. MFA provides an extra layer of security to make it more difficult for someone to misuse your Marquette credentials.
