PingID Replacing Duo for Multi-Factor Authentication

OU IT is currently transitioning from Duo to PingID for multi-factor authentication (MFA), which is required for mobile and off-network access to enterprise software and services like your OU/OUHSC email and PeopleSoft.

Multi-factor authentication is a critical component of a secure IT environment that enables you to verify your identity using your phone or other personal device and prevents unauthorized users from logging into your account, even if they know your password.

Until the transition is complete, you will need to maintain enrollment in both PingID and Duo to ensure continued access to all of your needed OU services.

There are several different ways to authenticate using PingID, such as a mobile app, a desktop app, a phone call, text message, or using a physical security token (such as a YubiKey). OU IT recommends registered several different modes of authentication, such as installing the app on both a mobile device and your computer.
