If you’ve accidentally enabled the Duo mobile feature on your phone, you can disable it in a few easy steps. First, disable Duo Mobile in the settings menu on your phone. Then, enter the code you received in a text message. Duo Mobile will be disabled once you have entered the code.
Logging on with two-factor authentication
Duo’s mobile app uses two-factor authentication to ensure your account’s security. After downloading the app, activate it by scanning your QR code or sending an activation link via email. Then, use your two-factor authentication device to log on to Duo. Duo will send a notification to your phone if the second factor is not recognized.
You can add or remove a device as your default. It is recommended that you register two devices, but you can always switch between them. However, make sure you have both of them ready. If you forget your default device, you won’t be able to log in.
Duo Mobile is compatible with Android, iOS, and wearable devices like the Apple Watch. It supports a variety of authentication methods, including WebAuthn and Duo Push. This allows you to choose the best method based on your security needs.
Using a Yubikey or hard token
Activate the Duo 2FA feature on your mobile device and you’ll be able to turn off YubiKey tokens. However, you must remember to return the YubiKey token to Duo when activating the Duo account. You can do this by using an online passcode generator. You can also purchase a Duo hardware token. It is a small plastic device that can generate a passcode and be enrolled on your device. You can purchase one from the Duo website or Panthermart. If you’re using Android, make sure to enable the sideloading feature. This will allow you to install apps from sources other than the Google Play store.
If you have a YubiKey, you’ll need to configure its OTP. To do this, use the YubiKey Manager tool. This software allows you to assign a new Public Identity and Secret Key to your YubiKey. Alternatively, you can also use Duo to configure the YubiKey.

The default device of Duo will receive a phone call when you need to authenticate with Duo. You can also change the name of the device. Go to Settings > Devices. Select a new name in the editable name field. Finally, click the green “Save” button.
