As of June 1, 2022 anyone with a UM email address is required to participate in a second layer of security that will help protect the integrity of their account. This is called a "multi-factor authentication" where a message is sent to your personal device (such as a cell phone) that verifies your identity.
UM uses a platform called DUO for this layer of security. DUO will send you a message to verify identity every time you log into your email.
When you activate your UM email, you will automatically be enrolled in DUO and get prompted to set up a device as soon as you login for the first time. This process can be viewed in this outline for reference: https://guide.duo.com/enrollment
If you experience any difficulty, please call UM IST at 204-474-8600 for assistance Monday to Friday 8:00am to 8:00pm.
