MFA-Duo - Setting a Default Login Device
This document will show how to change the default login device settings to speed up the login process.
Setting the default login device and method:
Navigate to the Duo Device Management Portal at mynetid.wisc.edu/duo-portal. Authenticate with your UW-Madison NetID and Password. You will also be asked to approve the login through your existing multi-factor authentication devices.
On the bottom of the Duo Device Management Portal, you will see the two settings.
Set the field Default Device to be the device you would like to be contacted on when logging in.
Set the field When I log In to be the method you would like to be contacted on that device. If the device is a mobile phone or tablet with the Duo app installed, UW-Madison strongly recommends setting this to 'Automatically send this device a Duo Push'.
Note: If you select to automatically send a push to this device you will not have the opportunity to select "remember me for 12 hours" during the initial login push. If you would like to retain the option to remember the device for 12 hours, do not select this option
When you next log in to a Duo protected service, you will automatically be contacted via the default settings.
Note: Logging into the Duo portal will always ask how you would like to be contacted, so the default setting will not apply when logging into the Duo Device Management Portal.
