What is Two Factor Authentication?

Two factor authentication is login process that requires two out of the three elements described below:

Something You Know
This is typically a password or a PIN code yomemorize

Something You Have
This is usually a card, ID badge, or a piece of hardware like your phone

Something You Are
This can be a finger or palm print

Duo uses your smart phone as a second factor to strengthen our existing authentication system. Detailed questions about Duo Security’s implementation of two factor authentication can be found here.
