Two Step Authentication

Two Step Authentication
Enroll in Two Step Authentication – Android Phone
Passwords are increasingly easy to compromise. They can often be stolen, guessed, or hacked —
you might not even know someone is accessing your account.
Two Step authentication adds a second layer of security, keeping your account secure even if your
password is compromised. With Duo, you'll be alerted right away (on your phone) if someone is
trying to log in as you.
This second step of authentication is separate and independent from your username and password
— Duo never sees your password.
Duo prompts you to enroll when you log into a protected VPN, server, or web application.
Supported Browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 8 or later, and Opera.
The MyBGSU portal is now
protected by Duo Two Step
Authentication. Users will be
required to authenticate
using the Duo software every
time they access the portal.
If you have not previously
enrolled in Duo, the first time
you attempt to login to the
MyBGSU portal, as of
March 15, 2017, you will be
prompted to set up your Two
Step Authentication.
