MFA-Duo - Lost or Forgotten Device / Broken Device - Cannot Login
If you know you still have your device, but do not have access to it to login now, you can request and login with a temporary passcode. See MFA-Duo - Request a Temporary Passcode for instructions. If you expect to have an extended period without access to a device, you should also generate a list of backup codes. See MFA-Duo - Generating Backup Passcodes for Future Use for instructions.
Permanently Lost or Broken Devices
Once you obtain a replacement device, you should reactivate Duo Mobile on your new device. Follow the instructions on MFA Duo – Reactivate Duo on a Mobile Device. If you do not yet have a replacement device, follow the instructions under Forgotten Devices.
