Duo Two-Factor Authentication

Duo is William & Mary's new two-factor authentication service. It uses your W&M credentials plus a secondary authentication method (like a cell phone) to confirm your identity, thus providing an additional level of security to help protect against increasingly sophisticated security threats.  

Beginning in the fall 2019 semester, students will be required to use Duo to access most W&M systems.  Prepare for Duo by enrolling now. Even after enrolling, you will not start using Duo until it becomes required. However, if you wish to start using Duo now, you can opt-in to do so.
