Two-Step Login Protection to Extend to All Cornell Web Services Starting July 18, 2023

Related services: Security & Policy, Two-Step Login

On Tuesday, July 18, 2023, Cornell will extend the requirement for Two-Step Login (Duo) authentication to all university web applications that require Cornell NetID login.

While university staff have already been required to authenticate with Two-Step Login when connecting to all web applications, faculty and students have only been required to use Duo for secure services like Student and Faculty Center, Workday, and PeopleSoft.

The authentication process itself will not change and current Duo users can expect to use the same authentication devices and methods they currently use.

Faculty, student, retiree, or other users who have not previously enrolled in Two-Step Login to authenticate sign-ins to Cornell services can find information about enrolling and setting up the service by visiting Two-Step Login. Specific instructions for enrolling in the service are found at theĀ Get Started with Two-Step Login: Quick Guide.

Note that alumni, whose access to Cornell applications after graduation is limited, will not be affected by this change.

If you encounter issues with Two-Step Login or signing in to Cornell web applications, contact the IT Service Desk for assistance.
