This Friday, The Office of Information Technology we will be implementing a change to DUO. We will be extending the “Remember me for 24 hour” feature to “Remember me for 30 days.” After this change is made, DUO users will only need to go through the DUO two-factor authentication step once a month.
We value the feedback that we have received from current DUO users to help us make DUO an easy-to-use program for students, faculty and staff at The University of Alabama.
No change is required for the user, the user will simply receive the new “Remember Me” option Friday upon logging into myBama. The “Remember Me” option is indeed optional, and users can continue to go through the two-factor authentication steps upon each login if preferred.
Just like the current “Remember Me” feature, the new feature will only remember you on that particular browser, on that particular device. Meaning, if you need to access your DUO settings, you may do so by using a different web browser or different device.
