Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adds a second layer of security to your online accounts. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.
Duo MFA will be used to verify your identity when logging into certain SMU sites, and can help prevent unauthorized use of your SMU account.
