Watch out for malicious Two-Step Login (Duo) requests

Deny requests for Duo authentication if you did not recently enter your credentials.

The University Information Security Office (UISO) has noticed a rise in attackers compromising accounts and tricking users into accepting malicious Two-Step Login (Duo) requests. Never approve an authentication request from Duo if you have not been attempting to log into an IU resource protected by Two-Step Login. These requests may come as push notifications, text messages, or phone calls. Do not approve or accept any request for Two-Step authentication if you did not recently enter your credentials.

If you receive a push notification not in conjunction with a login you initiated, you should report it directly from your mobile phone in the Duo app by selecting “Deny.” You should also immediately reset your IU passphrase as the presence of the fraudulent Duo push indicates your passphrase has likely been compromised.

Report unexpected push notifications to the UISO. Indicate the approximate date/time of the activity and whether or not you approved or denied the request.

A new smartphone?

Make sure your new device is synced up with Duo.

Two-Step Login (Duo) provides an additional layer of security when you log into IU systems and is required for all IU faculty, staff, and students. If you have a new device, you need to make sure Duo is synced up with it.

If you use the Duo Mobile app on an Android or iOS device, you may be able to use the Duo Restore feature to recover your accounts from a backup.
