It is a method of confirming users' claimed identities by using a combination of twodifferent factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are. Duo Mobile Authentication is the app DCB utilizes to protect your NDUS and Email account.

Enrolling in Two-factor Authentication


You will be enrolled automatically starting August 12th, 2019.


When you login you will have the option to "Add a new device" on the left hand side. Click that link and follow the instructions. You should end up seeing a QR code on your screen that you can then scan with your phone's camera to enable your smartphone as your second form of authentication.

What's Next?

Once you are enrolled in the two-factor authentication program you will need the Duo Mobile app downloaded and installed on your smartphone. Once you have the App on your phone you will need to try and login to your NDUS account and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the 2FA setup. Every time you login to your NDUS account to access sensitive information you will be required to verify your identity using your smartphone. You will receive a notification from the Duo Mobile app, simply tap that notification and you will be prompted to either Allow or Deny the login attempt.
