How do I configure device options for Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?

After logging into and authenticating using one of the authentication options:

1. Select Device Options

Click the Device Options button next to any of your enrolled devices to view the actions available for that type of device. You can Reactivate Duo Mobile for an enrolled smart phone, Change Device Name for any type of phone, or delete any authentication device.

2. Change Device Name

Clicking Change Device Name will open up an interface to change the display name of your phone (hardware tokens cannot be renamed). Type in the new name and click Save.

Change Device Name

After successfully modifying your phone's name, not only will you see this from now on when managing devices, but it will also be how your phone is identified in the authentication drop-down.

3. Change your Default Device

If you want to continue using your original device with Duo, you can specify which of your devices you would like to set as the default. Click the Default Device: drop-down menu and pick your default device for authentication. Click Save if you are done making changes.

Choose Default Device

4. Enable Automatic Push

If this is the device you'll use most often with Duo, you may want to enable automatic push requests by changing the When I log in: option and changing the setting from Ask me to choose an authentication method to Automatically send this device a Duo Push or Automatically call this device and click Save. With one of the automatic options enabled, Duo automatically sends an authentication request via push notifications to the Duo Mobile app on your smart phone or via a phone call to your device (depending on your selection).
