2-factor authentication not required for Canvas login

  • February 12, 2018
UAB IT has removed Duo 2-factor authentication from Canvas in response to students and faculty concerns about not having access to mobile devices when logging into Canvas for exams.

If you are interested in signing up for Duo 2-factor authentication you can do so without having to worry about not having access to take exams. 

Two-factor authentication is one of the most valuable tools to lower the risk of theft of your credentials and information — and an added benefit is that your BlazerID password doesn’t expire.

More than 1,700 students, faculty and staff have signed up for Duo 2-factor authentication since it went live in early January.
