Two-Step Login is an easy and secure way to keep your personal academic information safe and private. Use it alongside your HawkID and password when logging into MyUI, ICON and other web-based applications.

Two-Step Login is based on the principle of two-factor authentication, a secure-login process you already may use with Google, Facebook, or other online services. It works like this:

Step one: You enter your HawkID and HawkID password to start the process

Step two: You use a mobile phone or other device in your possession to complete your login

To get started download the free Duo Mobile app from your device’s app store.

Next, keep your device handy and go to the Two-Step Login tools site from any on-campus computer (if you’re off campus, call the ITS Help Desk at 319-384-4357). Follow the instructions for adding a device.

Once you’ve enrolled your device and before leaving the tools site, make sure to enable Two-Step Login for MyUI and ICON and any other applications you use. Return to the Two-Step site to enroll additional devices or reset your enrollment when you get a new phone.

With Duo Mobile, you can complete Two-Step Login by just tapping to approve. You can use Duo Mobile to manage two-factor authentication for your personal accounts (Gmail, Facebook, etc.) too.
