Process Summary 

  1. Sign-up for Duo 
    Once you sign-up for Duo you will need to wait for your Duo account to activate before you can complete your account set-up.  Account activations are processed at 9:00 am each morning, but may be run more frequently at certain times of year.

  2. Download the Duo app
    If you have a Smartphone, download the Duo app now.  This will save you time when setting up your account.  The app is free, but you will need your App Store password to complete the download.

  3. Complete your Duo Setup When Prompted (typically the next day)
    The first time you log in to the Smith Single Sign-on page after your Duo account has activated, the Duo application will open and you will need to register at least one device (typically a cellphone or smartphone)* that you will use to verify your identity when logging in to your Smith account.   This initial set-up process must be done on a computer, and you will need to have the device with you.

  4. Add Devices and/or get One-time use Passcodes
    It is recommended that you register multiple devices with Duo to provide alternative verificationl methods if your primary device isn't readily available.  Devices that can be used with Duo authentication include, cellphones, smartphones, tablets, landline phones (such as a home or office phone), and devices called U2F Tokens.  In addition, you can have Duo text you five (5) one-time use passcodes, which you can save for future use as needed. 

Important: Once enrolled you will need one of your registered devices with you to verify your identity whenever you are logging in to your Smith account. You also have the option to check the "Remember me for 30 days" box on your personal computer.

This site provides detailed instructions to walk you through this process. Please contact the IT Service Center at 413-585-4487 or if you have questions or require assistance.
