DUO Enrollment Process

The steps above require the use of your smartphone device. If you prefer, a hardware token can be requested by contacting the Service Desk. Allow 7-10 days for delivery.

The Authentication Process:

  • Open a new browser session. 
  • Visit MyCPP.
  • Sign in with your BroncoName and Password
  • Respond to the 2-Step Authentication window by choosing your preferred authentication option. 
  • Select the remember me option if desired.

We recommend installing DUO on a second device, such as a tablet, or adding a phone number to avoid getting locked out if your primary device is damaged.

  • Open a new browser session and visit MyCPP.
  • The 2-Step authentication prompt should appear. (The prompt will appear if DUO has not approved a browser session.)
  • Select Add a new device.
    • Select the type of device to add Mobile phone, Tablet, or Landline.
    • For mobile phones or tablets, you must select the type of device (e.g., Android, IOS).
  • If displayed, scan the QR code with the device you wish to link to DUO.
