Multi Factor Authentication

Thompson Rivers University uses the DUO applicationDUO logo small to double up on security by protecting virtual environments with two-factor authentication (2FA).

Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to your online accounts by verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device).

This prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.

How It Works

  1. Initially you will recieve an email to your TRU email account from ITS Services with a link

  3. Your system will prompt you for your DUO-Protected PassCode. DUO logo small
    Note - this passcode will refresh every 30 seconds

  4. Once you've enrolled in Duo you're ready to go: You'll login as usual with your username and password, and then use your device to verify that it's you.
