Duo@Weblogin for Students

To better protect university systems and data—and your personal information—use of two-factor authentication has been expanded through increased use of two-factor for Weblogin

Two-factor (Duo) authentication for Weblogin became required for all students starting January 29, 2020. Thanks to all the students, faculty, and staff who helped make the transition a success!

About Two-Factor at U-M

Two-factor means that when you log in, you provide two proofs of your identity. At U-M, that means your password plus a Duo two-factor option of your choice (such as an app on your smartphone, a phone number, or a hardware token). An attacker who gets your password won't be able to log in as you without your Duo option.

Use of two-factor (Duo) is required when logging in to many U-M systems to provide additional, needed security. Anyone with a uniqname and UMICH (Level-1) password can turn it on for Weblogin to protect their direct deposit information and W-2s in Wolverine Access, as well as their information in Google at U-M, Box at U-M, Canvas, and more.
