2-Step: Re-Enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication(DUO) Using a Mobile Device

This document provides instructions to reactivation your Duo mobile account.

If you did not use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in the last six months, your enrollment in MFA may have expired. If this is the case, you will be asked to re-enroll when you log into Canvas. The re-enrollment process is similar to the initial setup that you completed last year.

If you need to re-enroll and you are using a FOB device rather than a mobile phone, please contact the Technology Help Desk for assistance.
