Logging in to GU Web Sites Using Duo

The following steps are for logging in to your application using the “Send Me a Push” option, which is recommended by UIS. With this option, Duo sends you a notification (sign-in request) to your mobile device; you just need to approve the request and you’ll be logged in to your application.  

Notes:  

  • Make sure to have your mobile device with you when you log in; you’ll need it to approve the login request that Duo will send to your device. Also, make sure your mobile device is connected to the Internet.
  • Make sure push notifications are turned on for the Duo Mobile app on your device.
  1. Go to the GU Web site (e.g., GU Google Apps, Box, GMS) you want to log in to.

    (Note:  If you are logging in to an application that doesn’t use the Georgetown standard login page, click here for instructions on how to log in to a legacy application using Georgetown Duo.) 

  2. At the login prompt, enter your NetID and password, and then click the appropriate button to log in. The Duo screen is displayed. 
  3. On the Duo screen, click Send Me a Push, as shown in the example below. (NoteThe Remember me for 7 days feature has been disabled for “Extensive Data Access” users.)
