Microsoft Authenticator Timeline

This article includes a timeline of applications that will be moved from Duo to Microsoft Authenticator.

LIT is currently working to move Multi Factor Authentication, from DUO to Microsoft Authenticator. This is a significant project for LIT and will require a phased roll out. We have approximately 150 applications that require MFA and many application require vendor engagement to make the change. Because of this phased approach, users will temporarily be using both DUO and MS Authenticator until all applications have been transitioned to Authenticator. The following is an estimated timeline of when applications will be moved to Authenticator.

Many of these applications will be moved without much impact, while others will require a short outage of 15 -30 minutes. We will be coordinating with vendors and communicating with campus as changes occur.

February - Complete

  • LIT will begin adding small groups of users to Microsoft Authenticator and when people access any Microsoft 365 web based application, they will be prompted to download the Microsoft Authenticator App and enroll.
  • Information will also be shared with campus on how to download the MS Authenticator App and enroll in advance, so you are prepared when the official switch takes place in March.
  • Users can begin enrolling in MS Authenticator (See Microsoft Authenticator: Enrollment Using a Mobile Device)

March - Complete

  • March 4th - Users will begin seeing messages with an invitation to enroll
  • March 19th - Microsoft Authenticator will be activated for all users. Users will be prompted to authenticate using Authenticator, when a risky scenario requires authentication.

DUO will continue to be used for all other applications.

April - Complete

  • April 15th - Authenticator will be activated for all FOB users.
  • April 22nd - A Beta version of My Apps (New Common Logins) will be available. (See: My Apps (New Common Logins)
