UT EID Basics
Two Factor Authentication
Currently, the university is transitioning from a tool called Toopher to a tool called Duo, which provides a user-friendly and secure two factor authentication solution. For more information, see Two Factor Authentication.
Important: Do not delete your Toopher pairing or the Toopher smartphone app before Toopher is formally retired since you will still need Toopher to access services while the transition to Duo is in progress.
