MFA-Duo - How can I activate the "Remember Me" function?

This document will provide instructions for setting the "remember me for 12 hours" feature which allows you to navigate to secure sites without requiring you to re-authenticate to MFA-Duo.

In order to login with Duo Multi-factor Authentication, you must have first set up a device and linked it with your NetID. If you have not yet completed this, follow the instructions here: MFA-Duo - Multi-factor Authentication First Time Setup.

  1. Navigate to a page that requires Duo Multi-factor Authentication after NetID login (e.g. MyUW).

  2. Authenticate with your NetID and Password.

  3. Before choosing an authentication method, check the box next to "Remember me for 12 hours."


Note: If you have your MFA-Duo authentication method default set up to automatically send a push, you will need to disable this setting before activating the "Remember me for 12 hours" function.

  1. Navigate to the Duo Device Management Portal.

  2. Authenticate with your NetID and password, and with MFA-Duo.

  3. Change the "When I log in" drop-down option to "Ask me to choose an authentication method."
