DUO 2-Step Authentication

To protect your privacy and secure your Bronco account, Cal Poly Pomona is requiring 2-Step Authentication for all campus accounts. This process will verify your identity before allowing access to campus systems. The CSU and Cal Poly Pomona are using the DUO application, a third-party smartphone app, for the 2-Step Authentication process, also known as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).  The DUO app sends a push notification to your phone when you log into your CPP account to verify your identity.

To set up 2-Step Authentication, go to the CPP DUO webpage.  For more information, go to CPP’s DUO website or eHelp, or contact the IT Service Desk online or 909.869.6776.
