Two-Step Login with UC San Diego Health, UCOP and Other Institutions

What you need to know if you use Duo for two-step login at UC San Diego Health or another institution.

It may be the case that you already use Duo to complete a two-step login procedure at another institution. Such situations include, but are not limited to, 

  • Faculty with appointments at multiple institutions.
  • UC San Diego personnel accessing UC Office of the President systems protected by UCOP SSO or active directory, including files and systems related to our local implementation of UCPath.  
  • UC San Diego Health personnel who need to use campus systems. (Due to licensing structures and privacy rules, the UC San Diego and UC San Diego Health instances of Duo function independently of each other. Information on using Duo at UC San Diego Health is available here.)

 Here’s what you need to know:

1. You will need to register your device(s) using the process described herein. You will also have to separately manage your devices and preferences through the institution’s interface.

2. You will NOT need to download the app a second time. Once you’ve scanned the QR code, you’ll see all the institutions with which you’ve registered.
