About single-button hardware tokens for Two-Step Login (Duo)

At Indiana University, you can use single-button hardware tokens to authenticate with Two-Step Login (Duo). Hardware tokens in use at IU include the OTP model as well as older Duo models. U2F tokens are another option; see About U2F tokens for Two-Step Login (Duo).

Single-button hardware tokens are available at your campus Support Center. There is no charge, but you need to make the request in person. Be sure to bring a photo ID.

Note:
You cannot register a single-button hardware token yourself, and you are allowed only one active token at a time. Your token can be added to any of your group or departmental accounts as well; see Use Two-Step Login (Duo) with a group account.

To see how this works once set up, view a video about using a single-button hardware token.

Single-button hardware tokens are non-transferrable, so if you no longer need yours, dispose of it as e-waste at a reputable electronics recycling facility. Before recycling your hardware token, be sure that you really don't need it anymore (e.g., to access HR information after you leave IU). For disposal resources in cities with IU campuses, see Green IT.
