The new year brings new functionality to Duo at U-M.
Throughout January and February, updates to Duo are rolling out at U-M. While the essential way Duo works is staying the same, expect a new look and a new way to verify your identity for some tools when offsite.
Enhanced (Verified) Duo Push
Enhanced (Verified) Duo Push allows Michigan Medicine users to access resources more easily off the Michigan Medicine network. Introduced last week for Michigan Medicine password management tools, users are asked to enter a numeric code while approving a Duo Push authentication request. This verification code option provides additional security against push harassment and fatigue attacks. It also provides improved fraud reporting when a user receives an unexpected Duo login request. The Verified Duo Push replaces the previous login process, which required users to enter their UMICH (Level-1) credentials followed by their Michigan Medicine (Level-2) credentials.
Please Note: This is not part of the EPCS Duo process. EPCS Providers still need to enroll their devices in the Duo EPCS system.
Updates to Duo's onscreen prompt
Coming February 20, U-M will move to a new version of the Duo onscreen prompt. See more information about it on the Safe Computing website. (UMICH Level-1 login credentials required)
