Logging Into Microsoft Windows with Duo

Duo Authentication for Windows Logon defaults to auto push.

After entering your Microsoft Windows username and password, an authentication prompt will automatically be pushed to the Duo Mobile app on your phone.

If auto-push is disabled or if you click the Cancel button on the Duo authentication prompt, you can select a different device from the drop-down at the top (if you've enrolled more than one) or select any available factor to verify your identity to Duo:

  • Duo Push: Send a request to your smartphone. You can use Duo Push if you've installed and activated Duo Mobile on your device.
  • Call Me: Perform phone callback authentication.
  • Passcode: Log in using a passcode generated with Duo Mobile, received via SMS, generated by your hardware token, or provided by an administrator.
    To have a new batch of SMS passcodes sent to you click the Text me new codes button. You can then authenticate with one of the newly-delivered passcodes.
