Can I use 2FA while traveling or when I have poor connection?

DUO Passcode authentication, described below, is only applicable for individuals with an approved DUO Exception Request from the Office of Information Security. Please see Can I Still Use Passcode Authentication for more information.

Yes. In the Duo mobile app, simply click the key on the upper right-hand side of the screen or select the Generate Passcode button on Microsoft OS devices to generate a numeric passcode that you can use without a network connection. Alternatively, you can use the Duo text passcodes feature to generate a list of single-use passcodes that you can use if you won’t have access to your phone at all.
