Security Key (U2F) tokens
Security Keys (also called 'Universal Two-Factor' or 'U2F') tokens also generate passcodes for Duo access.
The University of Minnesota currently supports Security Key tokens (U2F) with the Chrome browser only.
You must provide your own Security Key (U2F token). There is no charge for using Security Keys (U2F tokens), aside from the cost of the token itself.
Setting up your Security Key
Log in to my-account.umn.edu (you may need to authenticate your identity first using another Duo device).
Open the Duo menu in the left sidebar.
Choose Create or manage Duo account. You will now be in the Duo Device Management Portal.
