In mid-October, Duo, the vendor behind UGA’S ArchPass two-step login solution, will introduce a redesigned version of its Duo Mobile App. This is the app students and employees may use to perform two-factor authentication to log in to many UGA applications, including Athena, eLearning Commons, the Remote Access VPN and more.

The redesigned Duo Mobile App will include features to improve login experiences including:

    • Updating the position of the Approve/Deny buttons so that Approve is on the right, a more natural location.
    • Improving the accessibility of the app, including adding a landscape view, variable font sizes and improved color contrast.

      Providing clear guidance on restoring accounts when a user gets a new phone.

    • Making it easier to find and manage accounts with a simpler interface.

The core functionality of Duo Mobile is not changing. Students, faculty and staff can continue to receive a Duo Push notification, use passcodes, add, edit, reorder and remove accounts, and backup and restore accounts.

Duo will release the improved app Oct. 11-18 for iOS and Oct. 11-15 for Android.
