Duo - Enabling Push Authentication

The Duo Prompt is an interactive, browser-based authentication interface that lets you choose how to verify your identity each time you log in. Within the Duo Prompt, users can specify their device and authentication type and, if enabled by an administrator, manage devices via the self-service portal.

Configure Device Options

You can use Device Options to give your phone a more descriptive name, or you can click Add another device to start the enrollment process again and add a second phone or another authenticator. 

If this is the device you'll use most often with Duo then you may want to enable automatic push requests by changing the "When I log in:" option and changing the setting from "Ask me to choose an authentication method" to "Automatically send this device a Duo Push" or "Automatically call this device" and click Save. With one of the automatic options enabled, Duo automatically sends an authentication request via push notification to the Duo Mobile app on your smartphone or a phone call to your device (depending on your selection).

If you are not logged into the Duo Management portal you will need to go to

In the field that says When I login select Automatically send this device a Duo Push

Click on Save

Click Finish Enrollment to proceed to the Duo Prompt



Your device is ready to approve Duo push authentication requests. Click Send me a Push to give it a try. All you need to do is tap Approve on the Duo login request received at your phone.
