MFA-Duo - What is a token/fob?
A MFA token/fob is a small hardware device that a user possesses to authorize access to a service. It generates a unique six-digit number (also called a passcode) that validates the user and allows them to access UW-Madison digital assets.
If you need a MFA token/fob, please contact your human resources or IT department, or visit the DoIT Help Desk.

MFA tokens/fobs can be picked up at the DoIT Walk-In Help Desk, located at 1210 West Dayton Street, inside the entrance of the Computer Sciences building.
