Duo Mobile App on Android

Duo Mobile on Android

The Duo Mobile application makes it easy to authenticate — just tap “Approve” on the login request sent to your Android device. You can also quickly generate login passcodes, even without an internet connection or cell service.

Supported Platforms: The current version of Duo Mobile supports Android 2.2 and greater.

Duo Push

Duo Push is the easiest and quickest way of authenticating. You'll get a login request sent to your phone — just press Approve to authenticate.

If you are running Android 4.1 or later, you can approve the request right from the notification.

If you get a login request that you weren't expecting, press Deny to reject the request. You’ll be given the ability to report it as fraudulent, or you can tap It was a mistake to deny the request without reporting it.


Passcodes

Just tap the key icon to get a one-time passcode for login. This works anywhere, even in places where you don't have an internet connection or can't get cell service.


Adding Accounts to Duo Mobile

During the setup process you'll see a barcode to scan (it looks like this). Tap "Add Account" (or the plus button in the upper right), then tap "Duo Security" and "Scan Barcode". Scan the barcode to add the account to Duo Mobile.

If you ever need to re-add your account to Duo Mobile, contact your administrator.


Third-Party Accounts

Duo Mobile supports third-party TOTP accounts, like Google and Dropbox. Learn more »


Removing Accounts

Delete an account by long-pressing on an account. Then tap "Remove account" and confirm the deletion.


Pull to Refresh

Check for authentication requests by pulling the account list down. Duo Mobile automatically checks for authentication requests, but if you think you have missed a request, then pull to refresh.
