You have probably heard that campus is moving to using  the multi-factor authentication system Duo. This makes it much harder for hackers to access your UC Davis accounts. Even if someone has stolen your passphrase, they will still need a “second factor”.

The System Support Group (SSG) is here to help you move to Duo.  Here is a step by step walkthrough that should help you to move to Duo. 

Faculty and Staff are supposed to move to Duo by the middle of February. The SSG encourages everyone to move to Duo as soon as possible, because of the protections Duo provides.

If the walkthrough doesn't work for you, please contact us at
