Connect to wireless

Install and activate Duo

We recommend installing Duo's smartphone app to your device. It's easy to use and also functions as a built-in security code generator so you can log in even if you don't have cell service or WiFi at the time. You can also install and activate the Duo app on a second device, such as a tablet or another smartphone, as a backup, in case your primary phone is lost, stolen, or broken. Visit Duo app - installation and activation for more information.

Replacement phone with the same phone number

If you have the same phone number you have previously registered in Duo, use the phone number method to authenticate with Duo on your new phone. Then, you can activate the Duo app on your replacement phone using the Two Step Registration page. Visit Duo app - installation and activation for more information.

Add your Michigan Tech email

You can add your Michigan Tech email to your cellular device. Visit Adding your Michigan Tech email account to your phone or tablet for more information.
