MFA-Duo - First Time Setup for Token/Fob

This document will walk you through the process of setting up Duo Multi-factor Authentication for the first time for use with a token.

Note: This document is only for setup if you're planning to use a token instead of a smartphone/tablet with MFA Duo. If you're planning to use a smartphone/tablet, see MFA-Duo - First Time Setup for Smartphone or Tablet.

UW-Madison has selected Duo Multi-factor Authentication as our solution for Multi-factor Authentication. In order to utilize Multi-factor authentication, you will need to set it up on a smartphone or tablet.

More on the Duo Multi-factor Authentication Project can be found on the MFA-Duo Authentication Project's website.

Instructions for setting up your first token can be found here: MFA-Duo - How to Register a Token/Fob.
