Duo Two Factor Support
UCI Health uses Duo Security to add a second layer of security when accessing protected systems and services.
Passwords are increasingly easy to compromise. They can be stolen, cracked, or guessed. Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to your HS account by mitigating password compromise. By verifying your identity using both something you know (your HS username and password) and something you have (such as a mobile phone or landline), a compromised password cannot be used by itself to log in.
