We’ve heard the feedback from faculty and staff about password security and have made changes to how often password renewals will be required. Starting with our initial pilot rollout, if faculty or staff have Duo Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) active on their SJSUOne account, their password won’t expire for two years. That means no more email reminders every 180 days and no more locking yourself out when you inevitably forget it the next morning. Our goal is to always find technology solutions that add more value — that’s the competitive advantage that SJSU IT offers.
Two-Factor Authentication adds a second layer of security to your SJSUOne account. By verifying your identity using a second factor (such as a key fob or your mobile device), 2FA makes it much more difficult for anyone else to log into your account, even if they know your password.
Signing up for Duo is easy and free. Learn more about Duo 2FA and fill out the registration form on our Duo@SJSU webpage. We’ve already made enrollment mandatory for university staff, and we’re aiming to have all faculty enrolled in Duo by December 1, 2019.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s diligence and support in protecting our students’ data and enhancing the security of our campus. Thank you for your continued help and support.
