Password + Proof = Access

Duo adds an extra layer of security to Texas A&M NetID accounts. With two-factor authentication, NetID accounts are protected with something someone KNOWS (a password) and something they HAVE (a Duo-enrolled device/typically a mobile phone).

No mobile phone? We strongly recommend the mobile app as the most user-friendly option. However, other options are available. Review our Duo FAQs and Guide to Two-Factor Authentication to help make the best choice.

Two is Better than One

Ever fall for a phishing email and wonder what the consequence of entering your NetID and password into a phony website?

Texas A&M University gets hit with thousands of malicious email attacks a day. Most attacks originate from compromised NetID accounts. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or another device) prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.
