Good news UA students, your Crimson Mail account is now secured under the same DUO protection as your myBama account!
If you are an active DUO user, DUO is now applied to your Crimson Mail account.
What does this mean for you?
Your email is better protected under the same two-factor authentication that your myBama account currently receives.
How does it work?
When you go to mail.crimson.ua.edu to check your email, you will now see the standard DUO prompt that you see when logging into myBama. You will follow the same procedure as you typically would when logging into myBama. You can even use the Remember Me for 30 Days feature!
If you use a smart phone mail app (like outlook or your device’s standard Mail App) for your Crimson Mail, you will not notice any change. You will be able to use your Crimson Mail as you typically would.
Enjoy the perks of free DUO Two Factor Authentication as a UA Student!
We are happy to help protect your accounts and keep UA Cyber Aware. If you have any questions about DUO, like what to do if you get a new smartphone, please check out the frequently asked questions on our website. You can also call our IT Service Desk at 205-348-5555 for additional questions.
