MFA-Duo - What is a token/fob?
A MFA token/fob is a small hardware device that a user possesses to authorize access to a service. It generates a unique six-digit number (also called a passcode) that validates the user and allows them to access UW–Madison digital assets.
Who pays for MFA tokens/fobs?
During the implementation period for the Multi-Factor Authentication Project, an initial token/fob will be provided to faculty and staff who request one. If you lose or break your token/fob, the decision on who will pay for the replacement will be made by your school, college, or department.
