Since 2016, the University has been using Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Duo MFA adds an additional layer of security to online services when accessing Webmail, Office.SMU, and my.SMU.
With over 125 services that are managed with Single Sign-On access, we are expanding our use of Duo MFA on campus. In short, our goal is to keep SMU’s data secure even if a password is compromised.
Effective October 14, 2019, users can expect to be required to use Duo Multi-Factor Authentication for most campus services.
There are several services that will be excluded at this time while further impact analysis is conducted.
If you have any questions about Duo MFA, please contact the IT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-768-HELP (4357).
