MFA-Duo - How to Register a Token/Fob
This document describes the process to register a MFA Duo token (also know as a fob).
Go to https://go.wisc.edu/token.
Log in with your NetID and password.
Note: If you've already registered a device and are using MFA Duo, you'll be prompted to login with your NetID twice, then be prompted for MFA Duo.
Select the type of token that you have.
Enter the Token Serial Number in the appropriate field. The Token Serial Number may be entered with spaces/dashes or with numbers only; the format does not matter.
Making sure that the token's button is oriented to the left, press the button on the front of the token and enter the 6-digit passcode.
Click Register Duo Token/Fob.
The token will now be registered with your account.
Please note, if the token is the first MFA device you have registered, you'll will start being prompted for MFA.
