2FA, Manage Device Settings, Set Automatic Duo Push

When you register a smartphone as a 2FA security device using the Duo Mobile app, it adds "Send a Push" as an option every time you log in. To simplify login, you can set that notification to push automatically, saving yourself a click. Follow the steps below to change this setting in the Identity Center.

1. Go to identity.uillinois.edu

2. Log In

3. Once signed in, choose “Manage my 2FA”
