2FA Enrollment Guide: VoIP Phone or Landline

There are three primary steps to activating Duo 2-Factor Authentication:

  1. First, you must log in to Identity Management to verify your UCMNetID.
  2. Second, you must enroll the device you will use as your second identity factor in Duo.
  3. Third, you must save and log out of Identity Managment. Note that your enrollment process is not complete until you finish this step!!

This page provides detailed instructions for completing those steps and setting up a VoIP phone or landline as your 2nd 'factor.' This process should take you 3-5 minutes to complete.
