Duo for Students Coming in April
In an effort to enhance security on sensitive systems and to help keep students' accounts and data protected, ITS has started to implement Duo Mobile for students in phases by class standing. Duo Mobile will help keep your LMU/LLS email account secure and prevent unauthorized access to your sensitive data contained in systems such as MyLMU, PROWL, Degree Works, Box, and many others. We encourage you to take EARLY action to enroll in Duo to protect your account and your data.
Please note that on Sept. 13, 2021, ANY students who did not partake in early Duo enrollment will be manually activated and required to use Duo.
- Emails from Duo Security (example on the right) are legitimate. They are not phishing. You will continue to receive these Duo emails until you complete the enrollment.
- Duo enrollment emails are from Duo Security [firstname.lastname@example.org] with a subject line of “Welcome to LMU Duo Mobile Security. Enroll Today!”
- The unique link on the email is for your use only AND should not be shared or forwarded to others.
- Click the unique link from a computer. Have your mobile device ready.
- If you run into any issues with self-enrollment, please contact the ITS Service Desk.
What Is Duo
Duo multi-factor authentication provides additional security for LMU systems by requiring something you know (your username and password) and something you have (such as a smartphone, a tablet, a phone, etc.) when you access any Duo-protected services. Duo-supported devices include iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, tablet. Other methods, such as text message, landline, phone call, or a hardware token (upon request), are available as well.
