Using Passcodes

Doing the 2-Step with Passcodes

2. Enter a Passcode

To do the second-step verification using a passcode, select Enter a Passcode. At the next window, enter one of your passcodes. 

Note: Passcodes are single-use only; you must enter a new passcode each time you verify. Duo deactivates any old, unused passodes once you request new ones. 

Passcodes can be generated from the Duo Mobile app's Key icon or taken from your most recent saved batch. (See Requesting Passcodes for instructions on how to get one or more passcodes.)

Passcodes also can be generated from hardware tokens, sometimes called security tokens. If you're using a YubiKey plugged into your computer's USB port, press the light on your YubiKey and it will automatically populate the passcode field for you.  If you're using another hardware security token, push the token's button which will generate a passcode for you to enter manually.
