If you use Duo Mobile push notifications with Two-Step Login and get a new phone, you must replace your HawkID login account profile in the Duo Mobile app on your new phone. 

To configure the Duo Mobile app on your new phone:

  1. On your new phone, open the Duo Mobile app and remove the "University of Iowa - HawkID Login" account if listed in the app.   
    • iOS: Delete an account by tapping the "Edit" button in the upper left. Then tap the red delete (minus sign) icon, and confirm the deletion.
    • Android: Delete an account by long-pressing on an account. Then tap "Remove account" and confirm the deletion.
    • Windows: Select the option to "reactivate Duo Mobile" from the menu option in the Duo Mobile app. 
    • BlackBerry: Delete an account by long-pressing on an account. Then tap "Remove account" and confirm the deletion.
  2. Log in to you Two-Step Profile (https://apps.its.uiowa.edu/uip-tools/two-step) using your HawkID and password.

  3. Click the "I need to reset/replace Duo Push for this device" link under the mobile phone number you've transferred to your  new phone, as shown below:

    4. A window will display "Duo Push Options." Click "Reset Duo Push."  Follow the instructions to replace your HawkID account for Duo Push on your new phone. 

    • Follow the instructions to "Activate Duo Mobile" that appear on the next computer screen next to the bar code.
    • Open the Duo Mobile app on your phone or tablet
    • Tap the "+" button, or tap "add account"
    • Tap "Scan Barcode" and hold your phone up to the barcode displayed on your computer screen to scan it. 
    • Click "Verify Duo Push Activation" button on your computer screen.

    Important Notes:

    • If you get a new phone and are not yet using the Duo Mobile push method for Two-Step Login, no changes are required. (Text messages and phone calls are tied to a phone number, and are not customized for one specific physical phone.)  To begin using the Duo Mobile app, see the enrollment instructions at http://its.uiowa.edu/support/article/106591
    • If you are unable to replace Duo push on your new smart phone using the above instructions, delete the phone from your Enrolled Devices list, and then re-enroll your new phone. To Delete an enrolled device: 
    1. Check to make sure its not your default device. If it is, make another device your default temporarily by selecting it, and clicking on "Make Default" and "Save"
    2. Click on the device you need to delete from your list of enrolled devices
    3. Click the Delete Device button.  ("Delete Device" is not shown if you select your Default Device.)
