MFA-Duo - What if I don't have a Smartphone?
MFA-Duo can be used with a smartphone, tablet, token/fob, or USB security key.
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.
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.
Background: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.
First Time Setup Process for Token:
Login to the MFA Portal.
Click Manage MFA Preferences and Devices.
Authenticate using MFA.
Click +Add another device to begin the registration process.
Select Security Key from the device types. Click Continue.
Click Continue to bring up a popup window for enrolling your security key. The key will need to be plugged into a USB port on your computer.
Tap the button on your device to complete enrollment.
MFA only supports the U2F authentication method in the Google Chrome browser, so we highly recommend you use the U2F feature as a SECONDARY authentication method and have at least one other device enrolled.
