MFA-Duo - How to use a token/fob
This document will explain how to use a token for Multi-factor Authentication.
When prompted for MFA-Duo, you will be given the option to Enter a Passcode.
Note: if you have more than one device registered, make sure you select your token from the dropdown menu at the top of the MFA prompt.
Make sure that the token's button is oriented to the left (as pictured). Press the button on the front of your MFA token.
Note: If you are NOT using one of these tokens but are using a USB Device, see: MFA-Duo - How to Use a USB Security Key.
The token will display a 6-digit code.
Enter that code in the prompt, then select Log In.
